Granny Square Afghan (Work in Progress)

For several nights, I have been making 4-round, Granny Square blocks to be used in in a traditional afghan.  I try to complete 2-3 squares each day, depending on my time.  Once completed, they will be connected with BLACK yarn.  I have been using a combination of Berroco Vintage, and Universal Uptown worsted yarns, half acrylic and half wool.  For these squares, I used only ONE single crochet in the corner rounds, whereas I “have been” doing “two” single crochets in the corners.  I “think” I’m preferring the “one” SC, as it makes for a prettier block.  Below, is a sample of some of the blocks I have made:
