I’m obsessed with crocheted blankets right now. Shortly after I finished the Coast Ripples afghan, I started the Attic 24 Granny Stripe blanket. For this particular project, I like having a predetermined sequence of colors to follow. I enjoy not having to think at all about which color goes well with what, and it’s fun to see the big picture unfold in a paint-by-numbers sort of way.
I’ve also been spending a lot of time daydreaming about making another granny square afghan, especially after seeing Rosina’s lovely blanket on Zeens and Roger. Then I have to remind myself that a) I’m trying to be more disciplined about having less WIPs, b) I don’t enjoy weaving in tail ends, and c) a blanket made entirely of granny squares would mean a shit ton of tail ends and heartache. The last granny square afghan that I made still has half its tail ends hanging out.
Anyway, so there’s all that, and then another part of me wants to just start casting on for a new pair of socks.
