Vintage Solid Granny Blanket - Week 4 - Tuesday's Tallies

So one hundred and ninety two squares, twelve each of sixteen colours are whizzed up. The only teeny tiny annoying bit being I didn't sew in the ends as I went. Now regretted, naturally.
Although it isn't too bad as I am sewing in the ends for a pile of 16 different squares and then adding to my throw, a row at a time.
Using teal that has not been used so far. I will work all the rows one way, and then the vertical rows.
A nice neat join going through the back 2 loops only, and just an end at the beginning and end of each row.
Properly arty types can be random.....but I have equal numbers of 16 colours, and am randomly working out each row as I go. So I sew in the 32 ends for 16 squares, and place next to the throw to date to make sure a colour only ever repeats in one row of 16 and never more than twice is a 12, and of course never adjoin each other. The top row is "planned" but not joined yet below.
So is this random or not? Who cares.....! 6 rows of 12 done!
I love the Elmer Squares, so neat.

I should be on the border next week, and I am hoping to goodness my mum hasn't taken up crochet and blogging and seen her Christmas Present!  Keep up with Carole's One A Day Tuesday's Tallies here


  1. Oooooh, I'm so in love with your colours! Your squares look lovely. I started an Elmer Square Baby Blanket recently (never mind that I mentioned last week that I don't like solid squares... we somehow clicked now...)

    I'm sure your mum will be thrilled when she opens her present!
