The day has finally come. I’ve reached 100! No, not years, but colourful squares.
Almost a year ago, I set myself the challenge of making 100 colourful granny squares for a crochet blanket (see my first post about it, here).
The first square I made was red, and then quickly came orange…
Many more months later and after 96 squares, I reached the 99th square this evening – which turned out to be a yellow one, for some reason. So I couldn’t rest my hooking hand until I’d made the 100th, a turquoise square.
Whenever we played hide and seek as children, we would always count: “One, two, miss a few, 99, 100!” And that’s how I felt tonight, looking back at how many squares I’ve made.
So, now all I need to do is join the last 30 squares to the rest of the blanket, and then do the border. I might just get there before the year is up! (Have a look at the finished blanket here)
