And then there were none

There was one in his bed, and the little one said, “Roll over, roll over.” So they both rolled over and then there were none.

Today I finished all of the squares that comprise the Better Homes and Gardens Crocheting and Knitting Granny Square Sampler.

Along the way, I had numerous color hesitations, and several episodes of color remorse.

In the case of the color hesitations, I plowed forward despite my doubts; in the case of color remorse, I unraveled the offending yarn, rolled it in a ball, and moved onto the next color.

Yesterday I had finished Square B-5; here it is ready to be joined to the body of the beach blanket-to-be:

After I finished Square B-5, I moved onto D-5. Here it is with a somewhat somber shade of green for the last round before joining:

and here it is with a somewhat livelier blue:

With the colors for Square D-5 settled, I moved onto Square E-5 which looked like this after the dust had settled:

By the time I had picked my son up from an additional end-of-year band rehearsal, I had all of the squares joined:

Tomorrow, I will move onto the border and if I am able to maintain my focus, I just might get it done.

  1. Leslie, it’s absolutely gorgeous! I know the choice of colours has not always been straightforward as you’ve gone along but the result is stunning! If mine looks half as good as this I will be thrilled. Happy border-crocheting today! E x

  2. It’s amazing! You have the most incredible knack with color…Leaves my white window panels looking very sad indeed!
