You may remember that I took on a crocheting project in an effort to stay awake for the series of contest shows I watch. I used to hate the look of these blankets, but not unlike Brussels sprouts, it's one of those things that ameliorate as you age...I think.
This is what our living room floor looks like these days. When you click on the picture, you'll get the life size image of what the Professor is putting up with on a daily basis. He now has to use the far door to access his chair for t.v. watching. He also says that if it never gets sewn together we can always use it as a carpet, he's that accustomed to it. It's getting near the end. I decided on 15 rows of 9 squares.....do the math, that's 135 squares. I'm on the last row, and my shows are not finished yet.
This of course does not take into account the sewing together of the finished blanket. The little black ends will all be sewn in and "VIOLA"
I listened to several others who had attempted this project, and I have crocheted the ends in as I go. Now all that has to happen is, that Adam wins American Idol, Gilles wins Dancing with the Stars, and Grey's Anatomy comes to a season's finale.
We've been staring at these for a very long time and think that there are no two squares alike. Then we play the "which one is your favourite game". Deciding on the final placement will be quite another thing.
Back in March when I posted about this idea, I linked to Fiddlesticks which is now showing just what to do with any little bits of yarn left over! Eureka! She has the cutest little dog too! That is definitely another project!:)
