I still need to do the edging on both my Cozy Stripe Blanket and my Harlequin Shawl, so naturally I started another crochet project.
I gathered all my cotton yarn together in a basket, got myself comfortable and warm on the couch, and started making some simple, colorful granny squares.
This is going to be my long-term, portable, not-too-intense project, one that I can work on while watching TV, answering random questions from the girls, watching swim lessons, waiting for dinner to cook...I'm sure you know what I mean. Plus it will put a considerable dent in my yarn stash, which is always a good thing.
Oh, and did you notice I have sewn in my ends already? Looks like someone has learned her lesson.
I'm joining in the Winter Project Link Party at Thistlebear.
That will be gorgeous when it is done!!!ReplyDelete
I think so, thanks Leslie.Delete
Fabulous colours, going to be amazing!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jane. The colors are really nice to work with, especially on these grey winter days.Delete
Those colors are so bright and cheerful. It's going to look so pretty. I am still making my granny squares. I too have learned my lesson to sew in the ends as I go.ReplyDelete
I have to be so disciplined to sew in my ends as I go as I am always excited to get started on the next square; but it is worth it, because a while heap of ends at one time is no fun at all.Delete
I love that last photo. Great composition!!ReplyDelete
Just come over from the link party, I need to get and do my post!! I'm glad I'm not the only one starting new projects, trouble is I'm not getting the others finished! Your squares look so cheerful :-)ReplyDelete
Oh I am with you...I have vowed not to start anymore projects until I have finished the ones I have on-the-go. It is hard to do, because starting something new is so exciting, isn't it?Delete
I love granny squares, they are such wonderful building blocks for blankets. xReplyDelete
