Okay, so I didn't worry about everything being perfect. I just wanted this done. But now I have one of my favorite knitting bags free to use again!
See what I mean about not being perfect? That's okay. I think the colors make up for its imperfections. And this blanket was about the process that went into making the squares; once that part was over, it became something that just needed gettin' done.
More on the process, lifted from my ravelry project page:
Worked on these squares with the elderly at the home. They helped me wind the balls and pick the colors and hold the yarn while I did the crocheting. They usually got to talking about their old crochet days - which was a big deal, since many of them hardly spoke most of the time. Crocheting seemed to slow things down enough for their thoughts to bubble to the surface.
