Squares 58, 59 and 60
(the 3 at the top right)

That's what was ON my needles yesterday.

I have to say, now that I've seen it photographed I wish I hadn't put the light turqoise
and the green/blue/yellow (in the middle column) together.

They are too close in color.

Oh well . . . too late to worry about that now.

60 squares are done.
I'm thinking that puts me at about 1/5th of the way to the finish line.

Boy, do I have a LOT of ends to weave in.


  1. Yes you have ends to weave in
    but this blanket is a win win
    Each little square
    knitted with care
    you are making me want to begin

  2. It looks fantastic - well done. It's hard to pick a favorite from this selection.

  3. Fun to watch your progress, love all the colors.

  4. I love it! I had a blanket that had a zillion ends to weave in not that long ago and it turned out not to be such a terrible thing. It went faster than I thought it would.

  5. I enjoy watching your progress.

  6. WOW, the blanket is wonderful! I see a lot of these shown on podcasts I always think what a labour of love they are.
    Yes you will have a lot of ends to sew in but the result will be stunning :-)

  7. Hello, it is nice to see your progress. I like all the colors. Happy Tuesday, have a great day!

  8. It is going to be a favorite go-to blanket, I can tell you that! It is a beauty! Sew in your ends at the end of every block!

  9. Looking fabulous Dee! I love it and you are giving me inspiration to start my 2nd square (boy do I have a long way to go - lol). I think I'll be weaving in ends as I go...I don't really mind weaving the ends, but a ton of them would put me off a bit.

    I bet Giroux thinks it's already big enough...because you know he is sure it belongs to him!

  10. those two squares look perfect when are looking at the whole thing. Keep doing what you are doing :)

  11. I don't think it's a problem - there will be so many squares, it's not like when you just have a smaller grouping.

    I guess I was thinking you were weaving in as you go, or periodically ... good luck!

  12. Nice! It's looking so good but take it from me it's better to weave in the ends as you go. This is about how far I got before coming to my senses and started weaving in as I went and I'm so glad I did.

  13. It's growing (unlike mine) and is already beautiful. What does it measure now?

  14. Wow! That is a crazy amount of knitting! And it is turning out so well. With that many squares, I don't think you have to worry too much about the placement of each block/color.

  15. It looks really great and the when you zoom out for the larger photo there is more contrast between those two squares you were worried about, so I don't think you need to worry!
