This is something I’ve been working on for the past month. It’s a brilliant project I found on the Wisecraft blog – the Granny Square Sampler Afghan project. It’s a crochet-along project which started much earlier in the year and I’m playing catch up.
I love this project because I have a slight obsession with granny squares at the moment, and following this makes you learn different ones as you go along. I’ve liked all of them so far and not found them too tricky. I’m currently on week 9 which is a gorgeous three dimensional flower square and it’s my favourite so far.
I’m purposefully not following any colour scheme but keeping it all as random as possible. So it’s a bit of a colour explosion and not very co-ordinated. I’m finding that not thinking about the colours too much is helping me find some surprise combinations which work well together.
These photos show the progress, I think I’m about halfway through now.
Once I’ve finished making all the squares they’ll be sewn together into a blanket which I can’t wait to do!
