An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

I knew the squares would need blocking to smooth the petals out. I decided that the best time to block them would be when the short rows had been joined. That should be easier than blocking individual squares or the whole blanket!
I'm crocheting the squares together following this tutorial. I like the way it mimics the granny square pattern. I do wonder if a chain stitch between each treble group would be a good idea. I'll have to try it. I've joined the squares to make the short rows, then reattached the paper label to each row so that I know how to join those rows together according to my original arrangement.
