All the grannies are finished !

I finished all the grannies last night .. so much faster to only do a bunch of 2 round grannies then add the 3rd color as you go. I used the join as you go method for putting it together ! Its very cloudy here (60 degrees in January in Chicago ? ) so the colors don't look as bright as they really are.

 I still have to decide on the border , I am thinking of doing the ruffled edge again like I did on the Flower blanket  Flower blanket border , but trying to do 2 diffeent colors of ruffled edging . Then the favorite ( NOT) job of sewing in the ends ! If any of you have a border that you think would be good on this blanket please leave me a comment !

This is what happens when you leave your project on the couch .. It just amazes me that they cover themselves up. Thanks for stopping by and your nice comments ! Have a great week !

Wow, Priscilla, it's gorgeous!! Beautiful work. I love the picture of the dogs snuggled up in it. You definitely get their seal of approval! ;)

Very pretty! I really like the ruffled border you linked in the post; a granny stitch border would look nice too with your squares. Whatever you decide, I'm sure it will look great! Have a nice day, Heather

Priscilla, it is gorgeous! It is a nice size too! When you say, join as you go, does that mean you single crochet the edges together? I love this. Did you use worsted weight or DK? Is this a keeper, or a gift?
Love it!!!

Lovely blanket, Priscilla! It must have taken you so long. I don't envy you weaving in all those ends :) xx
