Crochet blanket; joining the granny squares together

I am using a simple double crochet in the back loop of each stitch so that the squares join securely and leave a small ridge to define the border of each granny square.


I have been crocheting on the ferry in to work every morning, and on the way home in the evenings; it's a nice portable project as you can stuff a few squares into a small bag with crochet needle and wool and it doesn't take up too much space. I can usually run off a few rounds in the time it takes to wait for my ferry to arrive to dropping off at Circular Quay.


As the evenings are drawing in it's harder to work in the evenings; good light is needed particularly for the dark brown wool. The job of fixing it all together is quite fiddley as you have to be sure to connects exactly the right corresponding stitches to each other. It's not complicated, but the stitches are tiny!
