No-Sew Granny Progress report

Good morning crafters!!

Just thought I would share with you the progress I am making on my blanket. I am really really enjoying this :)

When I started to make this, I was just picking colours at random, with an eye to keeping colours away from each other and mixed up. Once I got to 20 squares, I realised how darned hard this was going to be as it grew larger, so I decided to graph out the colours. I didn't want to do this originally, but found it was necessary and really quite enjoyable too.

Here is the graph I ended up with. The rainbow around the edge is the edge I am going to do after the 54 squares are all done. It will go all the way around the blanket, but my graph paper wasn't large enough to put it on. At least I have an idea of how its going to look.
Here is the colour planner (I tried hard to get coloured pencils that closely matched my yarn colours)

And this is the photocopy of my graph so I can mark off my progress as I go.
And, last but not least, here is my blanket with 25 squares

I don't mind the randomness of the colours, but I do prefer a more "rainbow" effect. My next blanket (after I have made Zac's, Mad's and Emily's) will be a chevron in rainbow hues. Looking forward to that one very much.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Take care and ciao for now,
