Getting Creative with Little Miss Ling: Granny Square Blanket
If you remember, I said that I didn’t want to start a new project before finishing my granny square blanket. And since I’ve not only started, but finished my amigurumi teddy… you guessed right! I’ve also finished my granny square blanket! Hoorah!
I used this method to wet-block the blanket, but without a blocking board, I had to pin my blanket onto the towel and lay it onto a flattened cardboard box on my clotheshorse.
It was impossible to coax the blanket into a perfect rectangle because of the method I used to join the granny squares. Carina’s method gave me the contrasting border between the squares that I wanted, but also gave a misaligned effect to the blanket.
Aside from that, my makeshift blocking equipment worked a treat and the process really flattened out the edges and stopped them from curling.
Coming in at just under 110cm by 60cm, it’s a tiny blanket, but it sure felt like a mammoth effort! I can only hope it’ll become a treasured family heirloom! ^_^
