The random collection of squares that I am sewing together into a blanket for SIBOL now look like this. They were all made by different knitters and crocheters and measured from 4.5" to 7". I edged them with the same colour and added some extra rows to make them the same size. The good news is that I developed my sketchy crochet skills and finally understand how to make a granny square.
I'm still getting to grips with editing photos on my new laptop. The colours are a little darker in real life than in my photo. The top square is definitely the prettiest and will take pride of place in the centre of the blanket. The other squares range from completely plain to interesting! I've been experimenting with the best layout and think I have arrived at one that is slightly better than just tossing them up in the air and seeing how they land.
Hopefully my next blog post will show the completed blanket. SIBOL blankets are distributed to elderly residents in UK care homes. Sue at SIBOL welcomes completed blankets and shawls but is no longer able to accept orphan squares.
