Count 49

I'm playing in the yarn along again. I am very excited as I have the exact number of squares required for this blanket.

What do they look like?

The pattern is from Royal Babies, a Patons publication from the early '80's. Most of the yarn is from the same era, though some of it is from even earlier than that.

No preciousness about this I used whatever was there and discovered that not all 3 ply baby yarns are created the same. The yarns are all synthetic - mostly nylon or acrylic or a mix of the two as in the white border yarn, of which I did have to buy one ball.

All laid out to get an idea on size and how the colours look together - I am very happy.
I will be using double crochet to join the squares rather than sewing them and the yarn for that is from the stash too.
All ready - now I just need some time at home to get it done.
Hope you have a colourful week.

the squares look great altogether. Well done, hope you get the time to put it together. I looks like it has been a great stash buster too.

All the squares look great and I love the vests you made. We've been back to school for two weeks now and I'm not finding the time or the creative energy to get anything crafty done at the moment. :/ Maybe this weekend I'll get back to some crocheting. Hope your day is great. Tammy

They look fantastic. I cant believe how quickly they all came together. They remind me of gelati or little iced biscuits!
