After visiting some of my favorite blogs, I was inspired to make a granny-square blanket. Attic24's ( use of color was so pretty, that I tried to imitate it with the yarn that I could afford (acrylics, but soft ones from LionBrand) before I start work again. I really like how the individual squares look, and I think the light pink is my favorite color: it looks very antique-y. I have started to put them together and outline them in lilac, but I am unsure which color to use on top of the lilac.....pale blue? another purple?

My squares, once joined into groups of four, also look a little wonky. I hope this is normal and will start to go away once I add more yarn and start connecting even more of them together.

  1. oooo your colours are so pretty and summery, its going to look fabulous as it grows.
    For the next round I would either do pale blue or perhaps just pick random colours?
