It’s a sad day, friends. The Crochaliser has become redundant. I’ve crocheted my 140 Granny squares. In fact, I’ve crocheted over 150 and suddenly realised I needed to – Stop crocheting Granny squares! – or I was in danger of crocheting my way towards 1000.
I couldn’t help it. They made such portable little projects. I came to love my quiet moments on a train with the crochet and a podcast in my earphones. Happily, I’ve realised that this project will continue to be eminently portable for some time to come.
First, I need to add a fuschia border to every single one of those 150 Granny squares:
I’m doing this so that all of my many-coloured squares can be crocheted together in the same shade yarn without any ugly jarring of colours. This is how I’m crocheting them together, following a tutorial from Attic 24:
So, sadness has become happiness. I’m thrilled to see how vibrant my squares look, now that they’re coming together like this. I’m really looking forward to the next chapter in this blanket’s life.
But what to do with that Crochaliser? Chuck it in the recycling bin? Ah well, at least I’ll have the fun of the Crochaliser videos to look back on. I didn’t half make a t*t of myself!
