It's a granny square blanket. My first REALLY BIG project.
I have dreamed of a granny square blanket for a couple of years. I tried some granny square patterns before but not for blanket. It's so BIG and may take me years to finish... But I'm terribly inspired by so many talented ladies making their blankets, from ripples, squares, to hexagons, flowers,..., they are all adorable! So, took a deep breath (just as I was so excited! :)), I was headed to the craft store over the weekend and took home some more lovely yarns:
I decided to use the granny square pattern from Lucy at Attic24. It's so beautiful and caught my heart right the first time I saw it. But it's most wonderful when I'm making it myself! Oh my Gosh, if only I know how amazing to make these sooner!
How cute to start from these lovely circles:
to bigger ones...
... turn them to these squares...
...from bigger and hot one...
and cooler one...
...to these!!! Here is how my blanket looks when it's finished! I've not yet counted how many squares for my blanket in total, it must be a lot!!! Well, still have a lot of work ahead, but attractive work, don't you think so?! :)
The more making these granny squares, the more I get addicted! I just love to take this basket when I get home from work every day! Happiness comes from just such little things!!!
Thank you all my bloggy friends for your time and words of encouragement always, you know how much it means to me!! ♥
I hope you are enjoying the beautiful rest of the week!
~ Much love, LS ~
P.S: I just realized I did post a drafted post (I fell asleep in front of my computer last night, urrrgh...) but you are so kind to leave such sweet comments. I just completed this and am so sorry for the silly confusion!
