My main project at the minute is something I started in October 2014 – a large crochet project and it consists solely of the wonderful Granny Square! Yes! You guessed it, I’m hooking up my first, large (actually extra large) crochet blanket.
It features over 10 colours all in autumn shades of red, yellow, brown and orange – as well as rusty, fox, sunburst yellow, pumpkin, chocolate and sunflower!
I want to create something in autumnal colours, an autumn blanket, partially because I came up with the idea in late September and thought it might take me a year to complete it and would therefore be ready the falling autumn. Then i had a crazy thought that maybe i would do a blanket for all four seasons. Winter, summer, spring and autumn but right now I’m just focusing on my Autumn blanket.
So far I think it looks great and granny squares are flying off my hook quicker than I anticipated.
Here’s a glimpse of my current progress.
I think the photo quality is poor as I took it with my phone! I’ve actually borrowed a friends DSLR and hoping to use that so you should see some improvement in my photos in the coming posts.
Anyway back to my blanket!
It’s going to be large enough to fit a double bed and drape slightly over the edges.
I’ve been aiming to crochet at least a few squares a day, even if it’s just one! They all add up! I’m also hoping to pick up a few more colours to add in and I need enough to crochet a border but I will get to that when I get to it. For now I’m merrily hook, hook, hooking.
