Playing

Since the slight anti-climax of making Short Lucky a bit too Large Lucky (though thank you for your kind comments)  I've been playing with my crochet.
I've promoted myself from the first stage of clueless crocheter = only allowed to make granny squares with scrap yarn to adept beginner = cracking out the blanket yarn, van green included.
It feels much more playful than the oh so serious business of garment making. No pattern to follow, no fit to worry about, the biggest decision is which colour comes next. Delightful.
This weekend I'm going to let myself order some more. Yellow and orange are top of the list. I know, crazy days!

Are you going make a bedcover with all those squares? I always think they look so welcoming. I made 3 when I was younger, dunno if they other two still exist, I know mine doesn't

So gorgeous. Here are my links that I used to more or less get my granny square blanket made. I did not have your email so I am posting them here.

I love the granny squares, the colours are so pretty.

It feels good to be blogging again and catching up on posts from old blog friends!

They look so fun! And I like that idea...no stress with the making other than the color choices. Imagine that!
