Crochetville Charity Blitz - Not a Great Finish

I was hoping this week's WIP Wednesday would soon be followed by a completed project for the Charity Blitz, but it wasn't meant to be.

As posted previously, some Crochetville members set aside a 6-day period each month to crochet projects for their favorite charity, calling it a Charity Blitz.

I pulled out some projects I had started earlier in hopes of getting something finished. I was crocheting right along on a scrap granny square afghan to donate to my local VA and was pleased with my progress - until I noticed that things started to look uneven.

When I attached the last 10 or so squares, I forgot to do the single crochet border first!

Since I had to rip all that out I decided to look at the colors again.

This is what I started with:

I really didn't like the bright red sticking out so vibrantly among the other colors, so I opted to take it all apart and start over. It was going to be nine squares wide so I picked nine colors and started each row one color over from the last one, so the colors will be in a row diagonally.

I think it looks much better, but even though I worked on it for hours, I wasn't able to make up for the time I lost.

Next month, for sure!
