Joining the squares.
I finally finished crocheting my last granny square for my blanket over one week ago, but I didn't have the motivation to begin the process of joining them together until late last night. Not only did my poor hand need a break from all of the cramping (though the pain is far more bearable now than before), but I couldn't figure out which joining method I wanted to try - Flat braid? Slip stitch crochet? There are so many to choose from!
And honestly? I was afraid I'd hate the final product.
But I don't. I actually really like it. The colors are definitely more subdued in reality than they appear in today's photos, which is good because I'm usually way more into neutrals than in yo' face color. In any case, It's never a bad idea to step a little outside your comfort zone.
Only 44 squares to go!
