new granny a day 004

I'm grannying away again.

I need a hundred grannies to make this blanket. It'll be all bright and spring-y like. And I could use some spring-y right now thankyouverymuch.

My biggest thing with trying to crochet a large project is figuring out colours, I always WAY over-think it and get bored before I'm too far into it. This one, I just picked out four colours at a time that I liked and made a few, then picked out four more, made a few more and I'm going on in that way for now.

I always love bright busy blankets like this one by Pip..

or this one by Gertie P?

Oh and these lovely sunburst grannies I'm seeing all over the place...I'm sure I started some of those last summer...?

And while we're talking about colours; how about this bag?! I think I'm in looooooove... ( yeah, I just used a semi-colon.)
