Some Grannies Have Gotta Go

I’m really pleased with how my granny is going. I’ve crocheted over thirty squares using several different variegated yarns, and they seem quite happy together, except for the two I’ve set aside. Maybe it’s the dark navy and forest solid yarns that are the problem, not the variegateds, because the block with a medium purple center (fourth one in top row) doesn’t look so bad. Hmmmm. That’s something to think about.

For now, I think the blanket looks better without those two squares. Photo on the left – with, and  photo on the right – without.

Now I’m wondering about the chartreuse.

Haven’t woven in any yarn ends… yet.

    I LOVE the chartreuse in the mix! In general, I think a bright/intense color in the mix will “pop”. Maybe try using the navy/forest so that you get a color change in the square so it’s not all navy or all forest but you get just a pop. Just a thought. This blanket is stunning!! I gotta say, your color sense rocks.

    I agree about the need for “pop”, but I’m going to rely on the PINKS, cuz I’m just not crazy about the “yellowness” of the chartreuse. It’s not part of my cool color palette. I get what you mean about the dark colors – I could use them in the little center of the granny square. There’s a deep purple I might play with too. Thank you! It’s fun to talk with you about color choices; your comments are thought provoking.

    “I can’t decide if I like the darker grannies in your granny blankie or not. I look at both photos and they both look great! Sorry…can’t help you decide there!”
