One A Day

It's quite windy and rainy outside today, meaning a day of being cooped in the comfort and warmth of my own house. I have decided to make more squares for my granny square project, where I am making my first blanket made up of small squares joined together.

When I first started it, I didn't have a lot of bright coloured wool in my collection, so some of the squares are quite dark. But I hope with the creation of many more bright squares with the wool I have in my stash now, that it will balance the dark squares out a little.

I am going to try making 6 big squares and however many small squares it takes to surround them. I don't think this will be a big blanket as I want to use it as a cover over my chair possibly, not quite decided yet.

Starting tomorrow, I will start doing one square a day even though I have already started this project (I think it still counts?). I shall blog every tuesday about this project for the One a Day group, the group can be found at ravelry!

Happy Crocheting

  4. I really like this kind of blanket too, I think it makes it so interesting to look at with the different sized squares. It'll be really nice to see it get bigger! :)

  5. I'm going to complete at least two projects as part of the one a day before I even consider picking up something new (says she). This is going to be lovely. Great colours.
