New Granny Square Project

My granny stripe blanket has been getting much love from the Big Girl; I resolve to make at least two more blankets- one for each kid.

Yesterday, I started working on a granny square project… hopefully I would have enough patience & time to turn into a blanket, this time for the Little One.

I got the pattern & inspiration from my favorite Japanese crochet book.

It’s gorgeous, I love the colors. When it comes to picking out the colors, I’m too scared to trust my instincts. Going random sounds fun but I’m afraid to let a big project go to waste. And since I cannot decipher the instructions re color combinations

I just squint at the pictures & try to copy the combinations.

It’s quite tedious all this color-changing & tail-weaving but they’re looking so pretty I just have to give this a shot. Wish me luck!
