The trouble with wool blankets...

... is that they take so long to make!

Over the past year I've been working on a grannysquare blanket. Not all the time, mind, just on and off. Sometimes I'd work on it for a few days, then I'd put it aside for a couple of weeks, and so on. Still, you'd think that I'd have enough squares for a decent-sized blanket my now, right? RIGHT?

Yes, so did I. And in the bag it looked like I had LOTS AND LOTS of squares, well enough for a blankie.

So I laid it all out on the floor - or rather, I tried to, while the Tickster was determined to thwart my efforts by taking it all apart again.

The thing looks tiny!

I'm so disheartened! Honestly, I think I'll need about the same amount again to get a decent size. It's not that it isn't fun to crochet the squares, and it's a good portable project too, but we are talking another 60 squares or so. Ugh!

Maybe it wants to be a little lap blanket instead...


  1. OH MY! It makes me think of my Epic CounterPain - I've been working on that thing for FOUR YEARS. At least crochet goes faster than knitting.

  2. It still looks very impressive!

  3. It's looking great!

    I started to make one of those once but I didn't weave in the ends as I went. That was a huge pain and I never did finish it.

  4. I have faith that you will get this done :)
