I began this project over the weekend after several false starts. I really wanted to make another crochet blanket to use up my acrylic stash, but couldn’t decide on a pattern. Finally I settled on the humble granny stitch because it is relaxing and mindless. My goal with this blanket is to use up some stash and end up with something I can gift by the holidays. There are many more complex patterns I could have chosen but this one makes my life easy while still being visually interesting enough. Of course once I started this, our weather for the next few days is going to be around 80 F. Hopefully I can get some reasonable progress done before it gets way too hot out to think about blankets.
