I spent another Sunday with wet wool and handfuls of sharp pins, but… all 24 squares are blocked!
The squares are all dry now, and all approximately the same shape and size. Quite a victory. Here they all are, post blocking. They’re in backwards month order, with December in the top left, down to January in the bottom right.
Now comes the super stressful task of deciding upon the layout. I want a good balance of colors and patterns, and I want to not give myself a migraine. I wonder if both objectives can be achieved? And there’s also the small matter of seaming- I’ve never seamed crochet blocks before. But hey, I’ve pinned lots of tutorials 😉
