Granny Square Bliss


A few months ago, I posted about making granny squares with left over tweed yarns. I finished the blanket a couple weeks ago for my oldest daughter's birthday.

I love the texture. I crocheted with double strands throughout. This made it a much faster project. I used left over tweed yarns from Jo Sharp, and Rowan, as well as a few other odds and ends.
I really loved making the vibrantly colored squares. To unify them, I picked a natural, undyed wool. I found that this was the best choice as it married itself beautifully with any square.

I love the boldness of the blanket,and in fact I love it so much that I have already started a new one. This one will be for my son's birthday which is on Wednesday...
