I admit, I really was beating around the bush on this one. Looking at my towers of granny squares waiting to be sewn together made me wish for magical powers one too many times 😀
I wanted to frog this number so many times as well because of the difficulty working with the sport weight acrylic+nylon yarn I used as the white border. It doesn’t hold shape very well and as a result, the corners are botched.
But if I had frogged this project then I would be left with more color un-coordinated yarn and no lessons learned. With the repetitive nature of granny squares, I am gaining improvements to my technique such as, how to make neater round endings, how to make sturdier closes on a piece and now, how to seam better.
It is by sheer luck that these colors can play nice with each other. Did you notice I use 2 hues of green instead of one? Yep, that’s usually what happens when you don’t plan 😛
I intend to use up all the white acrylic-nylon I have on this project so I clear up my stash. I also have a light-lavender skein which I hope will blend in since my daughter insists there should be some lavender in her blanket 😀
One thing getting clearer to me though – I really like working with cotton. And I think that if I want to explore the world of crochet wearables then cotton and I should become best friends. We’ll see …
Meanwhile, my granny stash tower has been happily reduced to this.
Create happy! ❤️
