On Sunday afternoon I found myself lying on the sofa, recovering from a hard couple of hours work mowing the lawn with a strimmer. I knew I wanted to craft while I watched TV, but didn't want to knit more of the Cwtch Shawl, or go back to picking up stitches on Eleonora, or weave in all the ends on my first Capucine. I briefly toyed with the idea of starting something else from my list (!), but then my eye fell on the big basket of WIPs next to the TV stand. Spilling out of it were the four giant balls of yarn for my Sofa Bed Afghan and I realised that granny squares would be ideal TV crafting on a relaxing Sunday afternoon.
So I've been working on those this week.
It's getting tricky to photograph them all together! I laid them out as they will be in the final blanket (there's an extra round of grey to go on each square, but I'm joining them all together at the end to save on sewing). It's going to be pretty big I think, hopefully big enough to cover the sofa bed.

I've got 10 big squares and 38 little ones to do. Fortunately the little ones don't take very long. I may hit a stumbling block before I finish, as I will run out of the grey yarn before the others, as that ball was already part used when I started this. I'm hoping I will be able to get my hands on it when I need more!
