The giant granny square blanket is done. Complete after 52 rounds. Now covered in wrapping paper, to be sent away for a christmas present.
The plan is for it to be a lap blanket as it measures (when comfortably sitting on a couch) perfectly covering one's lap and feet. To be honest I couldn't bear for it to have been much bigger, and was quite pleased when I was running out of wool. I found this a tad boring, going round and round and round.
I decided not to block it and left it as is. There's some slight curling at the edges, but otherwise it sits nicely. I've found this wool - Moda Vera by spotlight wonderful to crochet with. And the border I've done simply with double crochet in the orange. I
tried a few borders (picot and scalloped) and they all looked strange. So left it with double crochet.
