Okay guys, it's almost that time. For over 14 months now I've been carting around an ever-expanding tote bag of squares -- all kinds of granny squares, checking them off my map one-by-one, as I ever-so-slowly approach my target of 81. That's a nine-by-nine panel blanket, for those of you who have never embarked on a massive granny square undertaking before.
Sometime around November, I realized that I'd actually reached my goal, and had exactly the right number of each type of square that I'd aspired to...which was only mildly exciting, because that meant that the long, arduous task of weaving in about a billion ends was to be my fate for the next two months.
So I was actually kind of shocked the other night at Knit Night, when, just like that, I reached into my bag and pulled out the very last square. Guys, I think I'm done.
So now the real fun begins -- laying all these guys out, grouped by square design, to double-check and make sure I have as many of all the different designs as I should...
Oh, and of course the centerpiece, by special request of this blanket's recipient.
This is not going to be your average granny square blanket.
