When Shelibean first came to join our family, I discovered that he loved crocheted blankets. I crocheted him 4 simple little blankets. I used Red heart yarn that I had bought several years before. It was even the last of the yarn. I was happy to use it up. Crocheting Sheli the blankets restarted my love of crochet and yarn crafting in general. The blankets have held up really well even though I wash them alot. I figure they’ll last for a few more years.
It’s been 4 1/2 years since I made the blankets. I thought Sheli might enjoy some new ones. I use a simple granny square pattern. The blankets work up quite fast. I plan to make 3 (maybe more)
Wednesday-work-in-progress 2 down 1 to go.
Shelibean’s enjoying the first 2 blankets so much the he lay still while I took his handsome photo.
Wishing you all progress in your
works-in-progress, whatever they may be.
While blog surfing I came across a blog called ‘Sparkly Toad’. I was so happy to see that Julie has made a pattern for a solid granny square. I’ve always wanted one, but never found one.
I was so excited about it that I spent the afternoon working with the pattern. Julie did quite a good job on the pattern, but I had a hard time getting round 4 to work out. I didn’t have enough stitches in round 3 to accommodate the pattern and make the four corners. It’s possible it was just me not reading the pattern right. I do have that problem sometimes. It took awhile, but I worked out a bit of a different formula and was able to get round 4 to turn out right.
Julie contacted me and sure it enough I read it wrong. I don’t know what I was thinking.
I’m sorry Julie, for misreading your directions.
Thanks again for a great pattern.
Now, I’m off to make another one and see if I can follow your directions right this time.

Here’s my granny square I made by following Julie’s pattern the right way (hopefully). This would make an awesome warm blanket. I have plans to use this pattern in the future. It was an easy pattern to do once I got the hang of it.
