Moving Forwards

I'm really pleased that we are heading towards the end of January and that the light is slowly returning at last. The darkest couple of months are over and soon the months will start to fly by again.

I've been at at bit of a crafty standstill over Christmas and the New Year but, like the returning light, I'm slowly moving forwards again.

I've picked up these granny squares which I'm making from the recycled yarn from a granny stripe blanket.

The 'old' blanket

The blanket was made with blues, greens, pinks and purples and I've already turned the blues and greens into another blanket which you can read more about here.

This time I'm working with the pinks and purples only and I'm trying to make each square as unique as I can as far as the round by round colour choices are concerned.

The yarn used to make the squares is Stylecraft Special double knitting in the following colours - clematis, wisteria, violet, magenta, plum, candyfloss, fondant and raspberry.

Like the blue/green blanket I plan on using a lighter colour, probably cream, to increase the size of the squares before I join them together and add a border.

I'm not planning on making anything bigger than a lapghan so hopefully this little blanket shouldn't take too long to finish.

It's lovely when you've already done the bulk of the work and can simply add the finishing touches :-)
