I'm using the "join-as-you-go" method, which is fantastic for two reasons. For one, it means that I won't end up with a giant basket of squares needing to be assembled just when I finally think I'm done. It also means that I get to actually see my progress as I work which makes me feel like I'm really building a blanket piece by piece.
A week or so ago, boyfriend saw a loose end poking out of one of the square and he CUT IT OFF. Now the square is unraveling, ha! Oops. Silly boyfriend. He is now under strict instructions to keep all scissors away from my yarn. ;) Ever happened to you?
Obviously it's multicolored, and there really isn't a color scheme. I'm using Vana's Choice by Lion Brand, which used to be practically all I'd crochet with. I love how soft it is, and the slightly muted tones work well together. It's admitedly a lot of color, so I'm not sure how big it can really be without getting overwhelming. Right now, I tend to drape it over chair backs for a pop of color and maybe a little cushioning. I kind of love it. ;)
What do you think of my tiny "blanket?" Are you working on any big projects right now? I'd love to see!
