Yes, you read that right! She’s back! I started crocheting squares December 31, 2009. I finished all the squares December 31, 2010. Then I arranged the squares on the floor of my sewing room and except for little bits of sewing together, there they’ve stayed.
Until now. Yesterday I finished sewing all the squares together and I’m ready to start borders!
I started making the squares with Ramius. He sat patiently in my lap while I crocheted the squares. He sat politely while I arranged finished squares on him to photograph for the blog.
Max contributed to The Babette in a different way. To be fair, Ramius was almost 15 when I started it and Max is 2. There’s something to be said for kitty maturity. (Max wasn’t too happy with me for taking this picture. It’s probably a good thing he doesn’t know what the Internet is. Hopefully.)
The center of the blanket measures 33x41 inches. I’ll be starting borders this weekend (a darker plum followed by the medium pink. I’m going to keep them pretty simple with all that’s going on in the center of the blanket. I feel like the borders shouldn’t be too much trouble after all the fiddly work, sewing the blocks together. Right?
Have a great weekend!
