So I’m Crocheting Again?

It’s been years and years since I crocheted something.  In fact, I believe the last project I crocheted was a blanket for my nephew when he was born.  He turns eleven this fall.

But last year I saw this post on Nicky’s blog and I thought that pillow was beautiful. Granny Squares are so pretty and I love the way you can mix up colors.  Then in the fall, my mom and I looked at that pattern and she reintroduced me to crocheting which I picked up quickly. In January, I bought the yarn while traveling around the Lehigh Valley.

And yesterday, I started the actual squares for what may be a pillow or hopefully a blanket.  We’ll see how far I get.  But it’s a nice distraction for some of the larger projects I am working on now or plan to start this year.

025 026I plan to mix the colors up but have multiples of the same color combinations. I guess I’ll see as I go along.
