Ok wow so I got a lot done this week. I finished square 3 but just realised now I didn’t take a photo of it on its own.
I made square 4, Didn’t have any issues just followed my chart along. If you ever do make this blanket I really suggest printing out the colour charts and writing the colours up underneath. They are so easy to follow. At a quick glance you can see what colour comes next. I toyed with the idea before I started the blanket of writing the colours on the actual chart but that would be too difficult to read but underneath is perfect.
I realised after square 4 I was a quarter the way through the squares and therefore I’m actually making a blanket!!
I started on square 5 but it just didn’t look right. A closer inspection of my centre granny square I noticed another misshapen square. This time I missed some of the trebles in the gold round so I had to frog it back and put it in the incomplete granny pile. I grabbed a new granny square and carried on completing square 5 yesterday. I started on square 6 and did the first round in no time. I like the first round of colours, it is the quickest to do with few stitches and less counting. By the time I’m getting to my outer colours it is taking me two or three attempts just to count one row of 62 stitches.
If you are up to squares 7 and 8 you can find Lucy’s post here.

This week I may have to lay off my square making and concentrate on getting the rest of my granny squares done other wise I’m soon going to run out of centres and will need to start from scratch each time. The granny squares were really easy to do in batches and that way the pattern for them remains fresh in my mind. I’ll see how many centres I can get done. They require concentration and no tv watching.
