It's going to take a while, but there's progress. 7 squares - another 21 to go. Hopefully this will get done before the weather gets too hot to knit! Muted colours that would make it a manly enough blanket for a teenage boy. I started knitting on the horizontal but discovered that it's much easier making squares when you knit on the diagonal. A crochet granny square one just to break up the monotony.
