Gray skies, wind and rain. Not my favorite forecast. However, I took advantage of the perfect yarn weather and sat down with hook in hand. This is the result of my efforts since Saturday just before bedtime. Ten rows of granny stripe make a good beginning to a blanket. (I chained 219 to begin mine.)
If you haven’t succumbed to the Granny Stripe Blanket Fever, you may not understand the attraction. Repeatedly, I read that people have been turned off to the idea because granny squares are so boring. After giving the granny stripe a chance, lo and behold, they find it is completely different. It’s fun and highly addicting. Highly. It’s good to know I’m not the only one who can’t put it down.
Check out Flickr for inspiration. (Lucy at Attic 24 is my inspiration. I love her colorful blankets and other crocheted goodies. They’re so fun and full of life.) Then grab some yarn and a hook. And be ready to be taken over by the Granny Stripe Blanket Fever.
