Granny Squares: I love 'em.
They're usually small, so you can make them even in oppressive heat without giving yourself heat exhaustion and join them into a new, warm blanket as soon as it cools. You can make them as big as you want, so you could make a blanket with just one gigantic granny if you wanted. They can be made into almost anything you want and be made with color combinations only limited by your imagination.
|My current collection of granny squares just waiting to be joined.|
You can't really see it in the picture, but each of those squares is the stop of a stack of anywhere from two to twelve squares. And it's going to be my first time making a blanket with multiple square sizes, so I'm both excited and a bit leery of putting it together. What if the sizes don't line up like I think they will?
That's another beautiful thing about granny squares though; you can adjust the size simply by adding another round of stitches.
Do you have a favorite summer project?
