Inspired, once again!, by lovely blogs I decided when I first started crocheting that I wanted to make a granny square scarf. In particular two scarves made by Gillian inspired me. I have had the yarn for ages, bought half price!, Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino no less. However, I had a bit of a wobble recently as to what my next project should be. Scarf, CK inspired blanket - which I had also started collecting yarn for - and then the ripple threw me for a loop as I really want to make a ripple blanket as I think they are so beautiful.
Decisions decisions. Well, the decision was made for me. I was informed no more yarn until you do something with what you have. The ripple would have needed new yarn (!) and I don't have all that I need for the other blanket yet, so the scarf it was!
I have been busy crocheting squares for a week. Six different colours, four in each square, all different. 36 squares in total.
What do you think? I love them and have spent ages just arranging them in different patterns and looking at them! Hopefully that doesn't make me weird or something!!
I have loved working with this yarn. It is the first time that I have used it, but having seen it adored on several other blogs I decided to give it a try. It is so soft and smooth and flows nicely in your hand and is not all splitty!! If only I could make everything in this yarn. Oh well, a girl can dream!!
I haven't finished it yet, despite crocheting and crocheting, it is nearly there, just the border to complete. I will show it to you in a day or two!
What is coming next.... well I can tell you that it is planned to involve 210 squares. More to follow next week.....
I am joining with Marianne and Chrissie for this weeks Crochet a Long which they both kindly host.
