I decided that I would make my first blanket, a granny square blanket. The reason I chose a granny is because you can’t really say you can crochet unless you have done a granny blanket!
Also I just wanted something that was easy and I could do while watching TV. I didn’t want to have to be checking back to a pattern all the time.
So I did three test squares to work out what colour combination to go with.
I settled on the third one,
but when I imagined a whole blanket of it, it looked too “wrong”. So, I put it away in my stash of UFO’s and started trawling Pinterest for more inspiration.
