I've been working on this blanket for the last week or so. Each square takes about 30 minutes to make and then crocheting it all together, adding the border and sewing in the ends took another 4 hours or so. Mindless work when watching TV so no real added time to anything I wasn't already doing. I hate just sitting and watching TV with nothing in my hands. I'm trying to use up yarn I have around here and there's lots of that for sure. The squares are 12 inches and just a plain granny square pattern. It's big enough for a child and good colors for a boy.
