I've got a lot of works in progress right now, so I thought I'd let everyone see my crazy projects. Here's number one: a granny square blanket. Seems simple, right? But I can never seem to do anything the easy way, can I?
I was sitting around making some swatches of a new yarn for the ArtFibers store and I wanted to make a granny square with it. I found out through Adorn magazine that PurlSoho has a blog site, and I found a granny square tutorial on it. But the thing that really caught my attention was this picture:I got the idea to do a bunch of different sized grannies out of all of my different pink, yellow,orange,and red yarns and then stitch them all together into an uber-girly and comfy blanket. Progress is going faster than expected:I'm super excited to get it all done, but it's bound to be awhile. I'm making 1 big, 1 medium, and 2 small squares from each kind of yarn, and the yarns are all different weights. I've been sitting around listening to the Feist song "1234" and the Big Night soundtrack, plus a little Amy Winehouse while I make the grannies and it's a truly good time.
Oh, by the way, there's a big sale over at Superbuzzy.com going on right now (I already snagged some goodies!), so get over there quick before all the adorable Japanese fabric is all gone!
