A tale of several grannys

While I was on vacation in Texas, I ran across this yarn. It was so brightly colored that it made me happy just by looking at it. I thought it would be perfect to make a granny square blanket. It was only Red Heart but the cheerful colors were just what I needed to boost my crafting mojo.

I made a few of these squares and thought I would add some rounds of solid colors. The whole crafting plan slowed to a crawl. I made square after square and couldn’t seem to find the look that I wanted.

I really want a traditional looking granny square blanket with bright colors. The blankets I like have squares with only one row for each color. I kept shying away from that because I didn’t want to weave in a lot of ends.

It still wasn’t doing anything for me.

I finally sucked it up, made the squares with only one row of color and I think I have finally arrived at the look that I want.  These will either be edged with white or black.
