During the couple of hot days in Melbourne, there is not much you can do but stay inside and crochet! I now have 25 colourful squares inspired by One Crafty Mummas Stockholm blanket project, and also made up a completed square to gauge how big each square will be. Its approximately 14 X 14cm square, and I think I will stick to the colour scheme here but with each centre design a different colour.
Last night I sewed up the dangly bits of yarn of each coloured square so its neat when I finish off each completed square.
I think my method for this blanket at the moment is to make up the centre colours first in batches, then sew up the yarns. Once in a while, make a complete square.
For my completed project, it would be nice to have a 140 X 140cm of squares plus the border. This would mean that I need 10 rows and 10 columns of squares, therefore 100 squares. It should cover a queen size bed. Otherwise a nice throw blanket on the couch that measures 120 X 180cm in total which is approximately 8 rows and 12 columns minimum plus border, therefore 96 squares..
Coloured pieces are kept in a shoe box. Once there is more completed squares, I will need to keep them in a bigger box.
I love taking photos with my smartphone as it is convenient at times. I found a great app, Photofy, which you can enhance your photos with text, frames, etc. Easy to use and fun! A free app and you can purchase designs or use the freebies. Design on your smartphone once you have captured your photo.
