Inspiration

I was surfing the internet yesterday and came across this granny square blanket, which I absolutely love! It inspires me and makes me want to pick up my crochet hook.



Aren't the colors yummy??!

Yesterday, on my lunch hour I hit my local Hobby Lobby and walked out with a bag full of Red Heart Acrylic. My sister has requested a diaper bag for her newest arrival, so I am going to crochet one for her...hopefully it will be a bag she will use long after baby is out of diapers!

Started the squares last night, and I will have pictures of them posted this weekend. Also, the Babette is coming along beautifully and I have begun joining squares. Two projects at one time! This is so unlike me. I normally have to get one thing complete before starting another.

I can't imagine a life where I finished one project before starting another! :-)

Thanks Spacecraft...is this the Annie from my knitting group? If so, her knitting is awesome and she is a great girl!

thuy, so glad you found me.

The blanket was actually from an internet site which sold housewares. I immediately loved it and saved the picture...it looks pretty simple. I picked up some yarn this weekend to start one after I get the Babette finished.

I'll soon be posting pictures of my yarn selection!
