Mostly making: Crochet granny squares

I've always wanted to crochet a retro blanket; one of those quirky, stashbusting blankets that remind me of childhood picnics in the garden and visits to grandma's house.

Talking to some amazing crochet designers a few weeks ago inspired me to take the plunge with my first-ever granny squares!

Typically, I'm not using a pattern, but instead have taken inspiration from a TV box set I watched recently. A blanket made up of similar, black-bordered squares is featured in the background of most episodes... anyone want to Guess That Show?
