It's been a beautiful day here, and I've been making some little granny squares for a new baby blanket. It's been lots of fun! :)
What do you think of these gorgeous soft colours?
I'm enjoying playing with all the colour combinations, I am going for a bit of a vintage/retro vibe with the colours in this blanket, I think the slightly washed out, faded pastels are very pretty.
Hopefully I will get lots of squares made over the next few lazy week of Summer, this kind of feels like a Summer blanket. :)
I'm using MoYa Caresse cotton, this is an Aran weight cotton, really great to crochet with, and is working up quite quickly with a 5mm hook, the texture is beautiful! They are going to need a bit of blocking as I am trying to get a nice solid granny square, so have crammed in the stitches.
I'm planning on making about 80 squares, so nothing too big, and it should actually get finished!!
I'll post a few progress updates as this grows, I had forgotten how fun mini squares can be!
Have a great day/night wherever you are!
