Lots of tedious sewing and weaving of ends has been done!  I don’t have a photo of the entire blanket, but you can get the feeling of it in these…

Granny Square Hearts ♥

I ♥ Granny Hearts!  The small one is a nice applique, the large one makes a nice coaster.  They are so cute together!  The beginning is slightly different for each heart.  Quick to make up for Valentine’s Day in one or more colors.

Sneak Peak

I have been itching to make a fall color throw for years.  The design just never quite got there, never quite hit on what it should be, other than in pretty fall colors.

The design finally fell into place in my mind, it needed to be a Granny Rectangle.  I have been wanting to make a throw with the A Better Granny Rectangle technique, and have not done that.  Two birds and all that…

Another way to get those itchy fingers actually to work is to get a new crochet hook, this one is a Furl’s Odyssey.  So far, I am loving it.  Nicely made.  They do need to put the size on it somewhere though, that is a necessity it is lacking.  Since I only have the one, I think it will be okay.  No, it won’t, I will forget.  It is size H, there, it is here for posterity and absentmindedness (like I will remember where, exactly I posted the size!!).

And now I have actually started!  I think I have it to a pleasing (to me) proportion for a throw.  I will post the actual pattern at a future time.  For now, a photo will have to do.
