I love modular projects, especially blankets. Making things in stages really works well in my busy life.
It’s a new year and a new blanket fir me but I thought I’d share some of my 2013 projects.
I made this using the granny hexagon pattern from Attic24. It’s a perfect single person sofa blanket and has been designated the sick day blanket by the girls. The original idea was for it to use up some of my yarn stash but it never really made an impact but the colour on black certainly did.
I also tried my hand at the solid granny square and made a small baby blanket which will go with me to my next stall.
This year I intent to really impact on my stash by doing a square-a-day blanket using a traditional granny square. I got my inspiration from a square a day project which used colours representing the weather each day. Given where I live I decided that would result in a mainly grey and black blanket so it will be whatever colour I choose. I suspect my stash might expire before its finished.
Im also working on a blanket for one of the girls bed. I’ve got 20 squares at the moment … I have no idea how many I will need, but it will be a vision of green and cream. What a fun year ahea
