Whew! It took a little finangling to figure out how to join the squares. I have no desire to whip stitch, so I had to figure out a way to crochet them together. I tried the method that Lucy from Attic 24 uses, but I just didn't like the look of it for this blanket :( Instead I did a join-as-you-go method, slip stitching one stitch together, and then doing the DC on the row I was finishing. Sounds complicated, but it went very fast, and ends up creating this almost wavy/frilly join that's not as "stand-upish" as sc the inside loops together.
I've made quite a bit of progress on this. Almost done in fact :) Can't wait to get the last couple of rows done and finally be able to snuggle up under it.
Unfortunately, this is the only hooky I get to do for now, and then everything will get packed up until this:
is finished. Cross your fingers it's soon :) You know how it can get without our yarn and hooky :) On that same note, posting here will probably be extremely sporadic. I'll be stopping by all the regular linky parties and perusing what you are all doing though, so keep hooking and needling and fibering away, I will live vicasriously through your projects until everything gets finished and my family gets settled in our new locale!!
Until then, enjoy these gratuitous pictures of hooky goodness :)
