Greetings from the back porch! The weather is gorgeous, and my company has four legs and the sweetest face ever! I am a happy camper. I finished my latest granny square blanket. I am so pleased with it. I am also pleased with the fact that my leg is definitely on the mend. I was actually able to get out on the porch and clean off the pollen and get my plants outside. This is progress!
Then when I see it pop agains the black in this ottoman, well, I have no words! Don't you want to dive right in this photograph!
Phoebe gave it her approval too. :)
Just a few notes on the blanket.
1 - I joined my squares as I worked the blanket. I am really getting to the point where I prefer this method.
2 - I put in a round of small solid grannies. It slowed the whole process down, but the effect is completely worth it. It is important that you be mindful with the rows after the single squares...I had to go back and take rows out down to that row of solid grannies because I had too many stitches and it would not lie flat.
3 - it is my preference to have a nice thick border on the blanket. I worked it in half double crotchets.
4 - I apologize for all the red, but I just can't help it!!!!
5 - This is the perfect project for using up those scrap acrylic yarns. I did supplement mine with some more colors, but it is mostly what I had on hand.
Now that the blanket is finished, it fueled the fan for more hookiness. I am now obsessed. I want to start another blanket, but cannot decide what I want to do so in the meantime I am doing...
How fun are these!!! Perfect creative outlet. The possibilities are endless.
Blinged out with some embroidery and little crochet flowers, or
Crocheted up in a nice fluorescent green.
I threw I this triangle granny...not sure why, just pondering.
I have more done, but they are drying and blocking.
I hope everyone has a great week!
