So as the title suggests, I’ve decided to tackle the almighty Granny Square. I’m going to make  a blanket. I know I have started another blanket before but that one is such a grand project I will just have to put it on the back burner for now. Well this blanket I wanted to do 2 things, one was to make a funky throw, and two to use up all my scrap yarn.

This is how I store my yarn, in a vintage suitcase. I have heaps of scrap yarn laying about inside this case.

I’ve seen a couple of granny square afghans using scrap yarn, and I’ve simply fallen in love with them! Naturally I must make one for myself! 😀 So I’ve never actually made a Granny Square let alone a whole blanket, but I couldn’t let this turn me off of the idea. I was feeling adventurous and confident. So I looked up a Granny Square How-To, and started, I could not believe how simple it was. Sailing through this project, I can’t wait to finish and curl up under it. Here’s a peek at how it looks so far:

I like it, and suggest anyone reading this to make one as well. It’s a great project to use up your scrap yarn, and who couldn’t use a neat little throw?
