Granny Squares

...and LOTS of them!

Having seen this little beauty over at Hopscotch Lane.......

I formulated a plan to redecorate our bedroom (after I've done the other 4!) and I told you a bit about it here.

I chose my colours......

...after some deliberation I changed the Stylecraft Minty Green for the James Brett Leafy Green and the Cream for Peach....

.....and started.

Once started I asked The Hub to work out how many squares I would need to do for each colour to be used in each square but no 2 squares the same......confident it wouldn't be that many.

Misplaced confidence I can tell you when he came up with the number....120!!!

Oh my!

So here's progress so far..........

that's forty squares, eight of each colour for centres (need 24 of each! So that's another 80 to go!).
And I plan to follow Becky's row 4 and 7 in white, the last will be join-as-you-go, so here we are with one square at the join-as-you-go stage...only another 119 to go!!!!

Guess I'd better get on with it then! 

Are you hooking anything?

See you soon,



  1. I'm doing a similar blanket for my daughter. I also picked a deep red and a baby blue but I'm a but worried that it looks like the west ham strip

    1. It is so hard to get the colour thing right, still not sure I've cracked it! It took some playing with, and you're pooped if you don't like's so much hard work!

      Only at the end can you truly see if it's worked!

      I'd love to see West Ham rushing round in crocheted strip! ;)
