A few posts back I showed these granny squares that I have been making. I have made dozens of them now and they are gradually beginning to look like this.
I am still not quite sure about the blue border but couldn't find any yarn in the right shade of red/pink. The colours here are not accurate and are much richer and lovelier in reality. I had no pattern to go by and no idea of how many squares I would need for a waistcoat in my size, so just made as many as possible out of three skeins of wool. I limited myself to three skeins as it was rather expensive. I have spent ages drawing little diagrams of squares in various arrangements as well as arranging the squares themselves and I think I will have enough. I can always crochet wider or deeper outer borders if a little more width or depth is needed.
I was too impatient to stop and press these joined squares before I photographed them and no doubt they will look better for proper attention.
It felt like April several times last month, but on my morning walks recently it has felt decidedly like March. There's a nippy little breeze out there so don't pack your winter woollies away just yet.
