I’ve sorted out my yarn-room. Kind of. Which basically means I started another giant granny square blanket two days ago. Tut tut ….
This particular one is going to be in darker colours, colours like that luscious moss-green, chocolate brown, bordeaux, grape, mixed and dark grey and navy blue. A blanket for Autumn and Winter. I think like this blanket already more than I like the bright one. Ah well, some things just never change, I guess, like my preference for green.
I want every row to be in one colour only, I mean with this that I don’t attach another colour when’ll I ran out of yarn half way my row. With that rule it means I now have a basket filled with tiny bits of leftovers. Maybe it is enough to make mini-squares. A blanket for a doll, although I do not play with dolls anymore. Or I could make flowers with it and add them to the last rows.I don’t think I have enough (!) stash-yarn to make the dark one as big as the colourful one, but I’ll see how far I get. I really don’t want to buy any extra (of course I want that, but it’s not allowed only in case of an emergency) yarn for project, as it is for me a use-all-the-yarn-you-have-in-the-house project.
The plan was to work only on these GGS-blankets at night, but I am already so hooked on them that I can’t leave them alone. I just háve to work on them. For a short while I’ve considered to add other stitches then trebles to this blanket, but then I realized this is an evening-blanket. I don’t want to count stitches or to read a pattern while watching/listening tv. So I’ll stick to the simple 3 trebles per space rhythm. Calming, relaxing and soothing crochet at night. Love that.
