Yesterday, I spent my day making the yummy granny squares pictured above. I have twenty-five and a half squares done thus far. It’s moving surprisingly quickly, but the project did consume my day yesterday.
I’ve been inspired to start this blanket project by a post about a positively gorgeous blanket by Matt, as can be seen here: http://accordingtomatt.blogspot.com/2013/01/granny-square-blanketthe-sequel.html. His is gorgeous and full a broad range of color. Mine will only be fifteen colors (I’ve bought ten thus far).
I’m aiming for a twin-sized blanket as my first goal, but eventually I’d love to have a king-sized bedspread. That’s a fairly ambitious goal and I am prepared for this to be a long-term project. I’d love to have this done by the start of November. Since the boys start school Monday, I will have a fair bit more free time on my hands during the day so hopefully that’s not an unrealistic goal.
Time to get going for the day. More granny squares are waiting!
