My sister mentioned that the last blanket I made has been outgrown, so Pretty Pretty Princess and I conferred on the colors for her new blanket. She was adamant about YELLOW!! So, I thought I would go with a "sophisticated, but whimsical girl" pallette, and a Granny Square pattern.
I don't like making teeny little squares that I whipstitch together since that involves alot of counting, and I think I have made it pretty clear how I feel about number-related crafting. I really think that one huge granny square is much cooler looking.
Normally, I don't crochet after Christmas because I am sick of looking at yarn by the end of December, and because I feel like I will jinx the arrival of warm weather by crafting cold weather items. But, Mother Nature has been giving us the cold shoulder this year, so I am happy to be wrapped up in cozy fuzziness right now:
