I decided to start working on a long term project for myself.....I'm going to need 480 (or more ) of these squares so quite a few more to go yet lol. I wanted to see how many squares I could get out of a ball I made 7 out of one of the orange 50g balls and with the leftover wool made two smaller squares consisting of 4 rounds instead of the 6 I used for the larger squares, not sure what theses smaller ones will turn into but will just add them to the pile till I have enough to work them into a cushion or a smaller baby blanket??
Has anyone read the book Elemer the elephant?? well this is going to be my Elmer blanket for our bed for next winter, can you see I have one colour missing that I really, really, really love and can't get a ball of yet :( Oh well I'm not going to start putting it together till I reach the 300 mark with my squares so hopefully I'll be able to source out a ball or three of my favourite red :)
These aren't all the colours I want to use in my blanket I still have to order a few more balls to get some more colour happening but I'm not worried as it will probably take me all year to source them and then work them up. The wool is called Drops baby merino in 4ply and is lovely to crochet with.
