Little baby squares

Here’s a long-term project I unearthed a couple nights ago: a scrap granny square baby blanket. When I started it, I’d figured it’d be a here-and-there kind of thing, but I really didn’t anticipate having let it be a UFO for several full years now.

I added a couple new squares to the collection last night. So far, there are 21 of what I figure will need to be about 40 before I begin connecting them.

Maybe by the time I get that far, I’ll even have a new-baby gift recipient in mind. There were a bunch of new babies within a few months, but then for the last year, no new babies at all. I guess it’s time toΒ  prepare for the next boom.

Still enjoying “Foxfire,” though taking it in very slowly and carefully as fireplace cookery and fruit bleaching and log cabin construction and such are completely new to me!

Joining Ginny and her many followers for this week’s Yarn Along. Check it out!

And drop me a comment, friends: Mine are all very ordinary, plain granny squares…so far. Maybe it’s time to shake this project up a bit. What’s your favorite granny square pattern?

    1. Why thank you, Simona! I have to say I just clicked over to your blog and wow! Your recent winter/snow photographs are fantastic!!

    1. Thanks, Becki! What I think is so fun about these is, I didn’t pick any of this yarn myself, so I’m always a little pleasantly surprised how well I like them. The yarn is all leftovers passed along to me when a dear, dear friend of my grandmother’s died. I think she’d have liked seeing it in a colorful baby blanket. πŸ™‚

  1. Love making granny squares – such a meditative project and so perfect for all yarn leftovers. My only problem is that I never put them together afterwards πŸ™‚

    1. Alina! You posted this sweet comment two months ago and I didn’t see it until today. I’m so sorry!

      I agree, granny squares are practically addictive to make, and it is a pleasure seeing unused leftovers get turned into something pretty. But you’re so right about putting them together. I admit it…this project is once again languishing unfinished in my craft supplies….

    1. Me, too! I don’t so much love all that finishing work, but it’s like cookies and weight gain. You take the other ’cause you love the one. πŸ™‚

    1. You got that right, Andrea…once you’re in, you’re in again and again. It’s a pleasant and generally harmless kind of addiction.
