literally within minutes of finishing my Kaleidoscope blanket I was off to my Stylecraft stash with my hook. I am officially a crochet addict :0)
Towards the end of a project I always start planning the next in my head. I was yearning for some granny square simpleness.
The lovely Heather at Little Tin Bird had treated me to a sneak peek of her latest secret project a couple of weeks ago and I loved it ,a LOT ! Heather has finished her baby blanket now...... take a look at it here. Isn't it wonderful . I love the small blocks of colour .Heathers choice of colours is just gorgeous and even better , since it's also made from Stylecraft ,I had a similar selection already.
So that was my main inspiration for my latest project. I've been making these squares for just over a week now .They are so quick and relaxing to make . I recon I'm about half way to the number needed for my latest baby blanket.......
I love the look of the squares piled up on my ripple baby blanket ,made back in November last year.
As you can see I've made my squares with a white centre . I'm not sure how much I'm liking it but the plan is to join the squares with white using single crochet(U.K. double ) joining on the front . So hopefully that will make it look better.
I've been wanting to try this way of joining for a while now . Do take a look at Debbie's gorgeous blanket , with squares joined in this way . I love the extra texture it gives.
Trouble is that just today I found this on Pinterest....so now I'm tempted to do a white round of Double (U.K. treble )crochet on each square . Ooooh , dilemmas :0)
Speaking of Pinterest, I've been good and resisted joining so far . I've heard how addictive it can be and I already spend a lot of time online some days. It doesn't stop me looking at other lovelies collections though. Heather has a lovely collection of pins .
But I HAVE to link to Rachel's ....wow , it's huuuge and everything is such great eye candy :0)
Hope you enjoy the links .
