Here's what I've been working on... The 35 squares for Lauren's "bold colors and abstract" blanket were completed Friday afternoon during the needle arts group I started two weeks ago at work. Friday evening (after a yummy dinner with Bill at La Imperial in Hayward), I began crocheting the squares together into columns (in my mind, rows go left to right and columns go up and down), and on Sunday began crocheting the columns together.
When I talked with Greg this weekend, he asked me to send him a photo of Lauren's blanket "in progress" - the photo above was taken yesterday evening before I began that night's work on it.
Hmmm, it isn't quite "abstract" but there's no theme and none of the squares are identical.
