In The Background

This week I've needed a quick and portable project so I rustled up my crochet hook.

Four new granny squares

I must have started making granny squares about 5 or 6 years ago now.  A friend had decided to make a granny square blanket for her sister and it seemed like just the thing to add to my compendium of projects.  So I (ambitiously) purchased 6 or 7 skeins of yarn and over the years I've slowly been adding to my collection of squares.

But this year I've finally given myself a goal.  I've been aiming for a trial layout 7 squares by 8 squares to see what it looks like.  I've laid out what I have, and my ruler claims it will be about 33x37.  That seems small for a blanket, so there will probably be some revaluation of my plan...


On the quilting front, I'll offer up this new little guy.

In the midst of reorganizing my fabric space and trying to intersperse small projects in the midst of the monsters, I have come to the realization that I need to interact with my fabric more.  How else will inspiration know where to strike?

Linking up with Lee at W.i.P. Wednesday.
