I finished it.
And a nine-year-old somebody was very happy.
Did you see the post where I showed you how to make granny squares and put them together? Well, sometime in the next few days, I will show you how to make a border. Then you can make your own nine-year-old son (or your niece, or your neighbor, or yourself) happy with a blanket just like Eamonn’s.
[edited: Part two is done! View it here.]
P.S. Thanks for all of the great comments lately. Life has been a little busy, so I haven’t had time to reply. I do appreciate them, though, and if you’ve asked a question, I’ll try to answer in the next few days!
UPDATE! THERE’S AN EBOOK Now
This project is available as a handy PDF in two flavors: a step-by-step photo tutorial, and a pattern-only version for the crochet-savvy.
Thanks for your continued support!
