Blanket Progress

Since the start of January I've been putting more effort into getting this blanket finished. I've been aiming to make at least one square a day but preferably two. This means I've made 70% of the squares I need

I'm aiming for a blanket that is 14 squares long and 10 squares wide. This means I've currently got 98 out of the 140 squares. I think today I'll definitely have to go for 2 more squares so I can reach 100 :-)

Of course even when the squares are completed I've still got to join them all together, weave in the ends from joining them together and make a border. Despite that though, it's nice to feel I'm getting closer.

    1. thank you :) It's a Lucy pack from Deramores :) My little boy is going to be over the moon when it's finished. I think I'm going to try to finish it in secret while he's at school and then surprise him with it by putting it on his bed one day :)
