The Inside Rectangle

I have fallen a bit behind with this because I have been very good as promised and have been resting my hands, but now dare I say it... they are improving, it is such a relief because I was afraid that they never would so thank you all you lovely people for your support your kind comments and best wishes kept me going through the none crocheting days.  
I have began to crochet again but very cautiously and taking it slowly, so now I'm trying to catch up.
For Week 1 of the  Afghan granny sampler we had to join squares to make the inner rectangle.  I must admit I struggled quite a lot with this.  I couldn't get it the way I wanted it and it took me ages to feel satisfied with the result, it was a bit like doing a jigsaw puzzle but without the right pieces.




Now I am trying to join the other squares to it,  I think that's going to be even harder and it could take quite a while,  I won't give up on it though and hopefully one day, I will have something resembling a blanket and if I ever get there I will show you how I did it, wish me luck!  :)

You can read how I got to this point  here

  1. I love it Linda - it's looking very pretty. :)

    p.s. would wrist braces help when you're crocheting? My right wrist has started to bother me lately and I'm thinking about getting a brace.

    1. Thank you, I think it might Debi and I would try one if I were you before it gets any worse, but I think I need more than that as my thumbs hurt the most, I do wear braces at night and I think it's them that have helped, I am thinking of getting crafter gloves to use while I crochet:)

  2. Keep on taking it easy Linda, or you'll undo the good work you've done. Support gloves help me a lot - you get so used to wearing them that you forget you've got them on. Here is a link: http://www.cottonpatch.co.uk/acatalog/Creative_Comfort.html
