I’ve added several more squares to the granny square blanket.
I have enough squares for a crib sized blanket. I’m aiming for a lap throw so I’ll need to make several more. I’m hoping to use each color combination at least once and then add a border. We’ll see how big that makes it. I ordered even more of the yellow yarn, it was $1.49 a skein online so I kinda had to. All sixteen skeins of it. I’m going to have so much of the other colors left that I figured why not? And if I end up with a lot of yellow, then I’ll just have to make some yellow stuff. It’s a decent yarn so anything made out of it should turn out nice. My next blanket plan is this pattern:
I still wish I had some white yarn, but it will still look nice with the yellow. I may have to do this kind of blanket again with a decent acrylic that has all the colors I want. Or I could just go crazy and go get the yarn I want, because that’s just how I roll.
I decided that my son just had to have a Minecraft Creeper hat, so I purchased some yarn from Knit Picks and started a swatch:
I found a creeper chart on Ravelry and will just toss that into the basic hat pattern that I use. I plan on doing a 2 x 2 rib but if I can’t make that work out mathematically then I’ll just do a roll brim.
