Granny Squares using "Sunkissed" colors
So, while out shopping a few weeks past, I came accross these same colors in Caron's "Simply Soft" yarn. I grabbed a skein of each color and began to making granny squares in a pattern called Sunburst. I crocheted up each skein into some solid squares. Then two things happened - there was a couple of scraps of yarn left over from each color, so I worked up three blocks, changing the color at each round of the square, and I liked these even better than the solid squares - I knew I needed to make more like these three, which meant I needed more yarn. This then fell into the other thing I discovered, the solid squares would only make a doll size blanket, and yipee this means off to the store to load up on some more yarn in these yummy colors.
My plan is to at least make a throw size for the end of the bed, that will lay next to the "Birdie Stitches" quilt. This is going to be a tandem project(s).
