She is finished!
It’s a nice feeling of accomplishment, when you consider the piles of WIPs everywhere around here… actually completing something…
It started here:
And then grew to here:
Inspired by the lovely colorwork of this dear designer:
She grew, and grew, until it was time to join…
And now she graces a place of honor, our marriage bed.

My color tips:
She started out as a stash-buster, so I used various odds and ends and combined as I liked. After ten rounds, I needed a significant amount for each round, so had more limited options. I also wanted to bring the colors together somehow, without looking too contrived.
So the final five rounds match the first five, in each square. It gave nice continuity but didn’t appear overly planned.
Nothing easier than a granny square! And I love the vintage look.
I used worsted weight yarn and an h hook.
