I decided to add a border of small (two rounds) solid color granny squares around my base of 36 larger granny squares. I'm thisclose to finishing this round. It's a work in progress (WIP).
My colors of red, green, blue and yellow repeated around in solid colors granny squares. I'm making up my edging as I go - no pattern here. I planned to block this when I completed it but I read that only natural fibers can be blocked. Darn...this is acrylic yarn.
I made a mistake and had to frog three solid color squares to get to one of the large squares where I missed a space with the red round. I just cut into the round and added the double crochets in red where needed. So glad that worked.
Do you make boo-boos too?
I also joined a knitting and crocheting community on line called Ravelry (here). It's a fantastic FREE website where I can download my photos from Flickr easily to post about my crochet projects. It's so neat now I can track my crochet/knitting projects (when started, finished, yarn used, hook used etc.). Now I can look back to see what yarn was used and if the item is washable. Now if I could just figure out how to put a Ravelry button on my blog...tried it and it didn't work. May have to get an appointment with the "Tech Guy" (i.e., hubby) for a consultation. LOL!

Today we are in Billings, MT. It's a housekeeping day...laundry and groceries and errand running. I have a small cold so I'm resting as much as I can. We just spent two travel days of over 400 miles each day to get here from Seattle, WA. Today is so beautiful. MT is known as the "Big Sky Country" and it is today....all blue and no clouds. It's warm enough we turned on the RV A/C - first time in months we have had to use it on our Alaska trip.
