I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned how much I love Granny Squares, but they are definitely one of my favorite things to make. The repetition, color play, symmetry, and evolving shapes really satisfy my artistic and creative self. They soothe my soul.
I do, however, get a bit obsessive. Especially this time of year. I’m not sure why I keep thinking these will be quick, side projects. I’ve been at this one for a week. One more round with dark blue and it will done. Except for all the loose ends. I usually weave as I go, but I was more driven by a need to put it all together than I was by the need to not leave myself that mess.
I also started a blanket while teaching my youngest how to make them. I’ve decided to leave that for over my holiday break. My poor hands and shoulders are feeling the burn and could use a break. Knitting is much more forgiving in this regard.
Now I have to get more white yarn. I’ve definitely used a lot of it and my middle one has taken my last skein for her own crochet project. Oh darn.
