Granny blanky

For the Christmas/NY break, I wanted a big project to sink my teeth into. I didn't really know what I wanted to make, so I thought I'd rummage through the collection of Unfinished Things. Despite there being lots and lots to choose from (some have been languishing for over a year...), it was this which pricked the imagination.

This teeny-tiny granny square. I have no idea why I made it, but there it is. I'd even sewn in the ends. It was probably the lack of ends that decided me. Before I knew it, I was rootling about for more yarn.  I decided to try reduce the size of the basket-of-half-balls by pulling out all the blue-y green-y shades of DK. Turns out, I had quite a few...

And then I got stuck in...

Currently, it's just at that stage where it starts to feel like a blanket, i.e. you can sit under it while you work. 

I'll keep you posted - I'm pretty determined that this should not end up rejoining the pile of Unfinished Things!


  1. Love it! I feel something similar coming on and I am trying to resist the urge until I finish a large wip...

  2. It looks fantastic! You seem to be motoring along with it too. I'm trying to work out what to do with all my scraps right now..mainly because I really want to buy more yarn and hubby says I can't until I get rid of some of 'the other stuff.' He just doesn't understand!!
