My two old Grannies-in-Progress, ‘Flower Garden’
and that bag of blue granny squares that I discovered in a thrift shop a while back
did absolutely nothing to stop me from starting on a new granny – a mostly pastel scrap one made of cute little two-round squares that I’m joining as I go!
I made use of last month’s long car trips to and from New York State to weave in yarn ends so I’ll have far fewer of them to deal with later. Yay!! And by all the nasty new ends flailing about you can easily see the two rounds that I’ve added since we got home.
I’ll probably do two more rounds of squares and then a narrow border. . . if I have enough pastel scraps for two rounds, that is. As I showed in my last post, my stash of little pastel balls is shrinking,
which, on the one hand, is a Very, Very Good Thing, as making use of my many, many little pastel yarn scraps is the main objective of this project. However, this is Very Bad, as now I’m increasing my choice of colors by ‘stealing’ pastels from my Large Scrap Ball Stash, which, of course, will soon result in more Little Scrap Balls. ugh. It’s an endless cycle! lol.
The great thing about making kid-sized blankets, about 35″ x 54″, is that I’m usually done before the novelty of a new design has had a chance to wear out. So far this granny has been lottsa fun!
P.S. Got any ideas for a name?
