More Progress

Not quite the 432 squares I had planned to do. To be honest, I think I may have completely miscalculated in the first instance. It would have broken my arms trying to lift it, had I had crocheted that many. The weight of all this wool is really heavy!

We have here 108 squares, made into 12 blocks of nine squares, then crochet joined into three strips of four blocks and finally all joined together, and featuring one row of burgundy DC around the whole lot.


Still have to sew in loose ends and complete the outside border, but I can tell you it's as warm as toast. I had the rug sitting on my legs last night while I did the outside row and I was literally perspiring by the time I finished.

I have managed to use up all the odd balls of greens, burgundy, plum, rust, beige, grey, black and cream. I did buy some more cream to do the final edge, but it didn't cost me much as I had recently received a $10 voucher from Spotlight.

Do you have something you're working on aside from dolls?

  1. This is looking great!! This shrugs are so warm, more now that autumn is arriving!
    Sadly no, I'm only working on a regency steampunk dress, as I barely have free time and that dress is so time consuming!

  2. Oh it looks amazing!!! love all the colors together! 108 squares is still a lot of work! I'm always amazed by your creations.
    Besides doll stuff I'm not working on anything else. I could say I'm trying to make more space but even that is doll related haha

    1. Thanks Alejandra, it's far from perfect, but at least it will keep me nice and warm while I hibernate this winter. :)
      Ah space! Where does it all disappear to I wonder? I am having a clean up here as well in the hope I can have a little more room for storing doll clothes. I wish you luck with finding your space.
      Hugs.

  3. That is really coming together quite well! I really like the pattern and look of this. I am in awe of your patience.

    I'm actually working on some scrapbooking projects right now and doing some research and planning for the second book in a trilogy that I'm writing.

    1. Hi Alasse,
      Crochet is a lazy occupation for me, takes very little thought once you've decided on colours . . . I just go into auto mode. :)

      I'll look forward to seeing the results of your scrapbooking on your blog.
      Hugs,
