56 and growing

Wahoo, I’ve made 56 squares of my Blue Block Blanket! 56 seems like an odd number to celebrate, but it’s the number of different colour combinations I can make from eight colours and means each one of those 56 squares is unique.

Well, unique-ish. Apparently I had a blip in my ability to tick off each colour combination as it was done and made an extra one. Ooops.

56 squares really isn’t enough for a blanket though. It’s probably not really enough for a blanket to keep my feet warm! So I’m going to make another 56. And they’ll all be unique too as I’m going to rotate the positions of the colours. So in the above pic the rounds are Aspen, Aster, Teal, Aspen but next time, I’ll move all the colours round by one, making it Aster, Teal, Aspen, Aster. Simples.

And just because I’m so pleased with getting this far, here’s another pic!

      That sounds like an awesome colour combo. Do you have any pics anywhere? And yes, I totally agree the big question is the joining colour. Oh and whether or not to do a border!

    Your grannys look very nice. I just started to crochet, and I am working on a granny blanket as well.
