Great or Crazy!?

Okay...I need some help. I have been thinking about this idea since I started on the other granny squares. I have a TON of handspun yarn that is sitting around. A lot of it goes together well as I tend to gravitate towards a certain color palette.

Handspun Yarns

The plan is to take all of these yarns, crochet granny squares, in a different pattern then I am doing now and make a blanket. The handspun will stripe slightly on its own due to the way it is spun so each square will be done with just one color. This will also maximize my yarn as there will be less ends to weave in. I would do a plain yarn on the last round of each to bring it all together.

Am I crazy or does it sound like fun?! Any ideas, suggestions...throw them out there.

So I have been busy with some stealth projects and with my hook. I am having a blast right now making granny square after granny square. I currently have 33 done and figure I need about 99 to get the blanket the size I want. Here they are.

More Granny Squares

I just love making them. I have been keeping careful notes on what color combos I have already done and hope to have them all different but I am not sure if that will be possible but I am going to try. I am already planning the next one maybe a hexagon granny with hand spun since I know I have a boat load of that stashed. Decisions...decisions....
