Blanket WIPs

Thank you so much for the sweet comments you leave for me and the encouragement and inspiration I am getting from this little blogland of ours!!

Today I thought, I will post about my blanket WIPs. For that extra little push to complete them and also for the sheer pleasure of photographing them!!

I have started a new stripy baby blankie!! No I am not expecting.. While going to my parents home this time I forgot to take some colours I needed for my Granny Square Afghan. So started making this baby blanket with the colours I had. Otherwise nine hours in the car without my crochet is boooring!! I will decide what to do with it later. Right now just enjoying making it!!

Next are these cheerful little squares. I have decided to turn these into another baby blanket.

Last but not the least my Granny Square Blanket!! Can you notice some changes in there? Yeah!! I have included some large squares in between and I lovvve the effect!!

I kept this on our doorstep for Diwali ( Festival of Lights, celebrated in India).

Happy Halloween to all!!Have a great day!!

I love all your projects. So colorful and cheery. We will be travelling to Sri Lanka on Sunday and you can bet my crochet will be with me for the flight and all points in between. I can't imagine just sitting with nothing to do, even on vacation. Are you just doing a simple single or double for the stripey blanket? I just love how it is looking. And granny squares are so easy to whip up. Such a pleasure to make. I've not made a blanket out of any of them yet so this will be my first. I am inspired by yours! Hope your day is great. :) Tammy
