Squares 11 through 39 - 63 Squares Crochet Along

| No Comments

I've been having fun working on squares for the 63 Squares Heirloom Afghan! I've decided to keep this blanket instead of giving it away. It'll be much too big for a lap blanket (although I could make several lap blankets with the 63 squares!), but I want to keep it to remember the great patterns and Bill needs a blanky to cuddle up with on the couch!

I'm working on the 50th square now, but have photos ready for squares 11 through 39 (minus 17 when I noticed the square's edging was on the wrong side! - I'll add it below later).

Speaking of photo taking, it's not bright enough in the morning before work or when I get home to take photos in natural daylight without flash (which flattens out patterns and texture), so I'll be taking photos of projects on weekends for a while (unless I decide to bring squares to work and take the photos there during a break or at lunch...!) Many of the photos below are blurry. I ran out of steam and may (or may not) re-do the worst ones.

As you can see, some of the squares are a bit lop-sided. That'll work itself out when the squares are put together for the blanket.
