Going back to the dark side!
The squares are arranged in rows of like squares at the moment – this will not be the final placement.
I needed to crochet all this:
before I was ready to return to Master R’s colour choices.
I’ve decided to leave it at these 12 squares and do a wide border – I just know it will languish for far too long in the UFO pile if I try to make myself crochet more squares!

Embracing the dark side.
Progress so far with the Manghan or rather Boyghan I’m making for Master R aged 7.
His choice of colours.
He thinks the Square in the middle on the left is “Epic!” and the Moroccan window, middle on the right – which is a pig to crochet – caused a sharp intake of breath and a ‘Wow!” when he saw it.
Many of the crocheters in the Nuts About Squares CAL have finished stunningly beautiful blankets, and whilst it is a genuine delight to see them, I do find it frustrating as many of my squares do not end up being the right size – lots of ripping out and adjusting still to be done. By the time I’ve finished this one – please let that be not too long ahead!!! – I will have crocheted enough for about 5 blankets, with only one to show for it.
I’m not moaning (well I am, but don’t listen to me! or give me any sympathy!) the high class problem of a crafting Granny!
For now I will enjoy the gasps of joy and appreciation to keep me going.
