. . . behind the scenes! It all looks orderly from this angle, a tiny pile of granny squares,
and a pile of granny blankets.
Things then turn into a granny square frenzy! On my table today you’ll find a granny square blanket in progress,
or two, or three, or four, or five, and lots of piles of towering granny squares.
More blankets behind the piles that need their ends weaved in.
More granny squares . . .
. . . each granny square gets graded according to size and composition.
Todays granny blanket in the making!
More ends to weave in.
Glimpses of radiating colour!
I like to make the blankets in a somewhat production line. I grab a handful or two or three from the mountain of granny squares, then sort them by size and composition into piles. Once I have a stack of squares of similar size then the joining begins. Then if I run out of that particular size of squares or a particular colour or ply, I move onto the the next pile. Hence lots of blankets on the go, rhythmically rotating! I then like to weave in the ends in bulk, doing a pile of blankets in the evening. That’s my crazy method, it works for me!
I’ve been joining the granny squares in all the colours of the rainbow! Red and yellow and pink and green, purple and orange and blue! Along with black, white, cream and grey also.
Hope you enjoyed the burst of colour! In real life the blankets look absolutely spectacular, I love the fact that I’m mixing granny squares that arrived from South Africa for example with those that arrived from France, they are all mixing and mingling harmoniously, the brights, the pastels, the solids and the variegated!
