Finished Object Friday

Pattern: Flower Granny Square by Silja Devine
Pattern: Spring Breeze Afghan Square by Priscilla Hewitt

Yarn: Berroco Vintage DK in Elderberry, Petunia and Natural

Hook Size: 3.5mm (E)

Modifications: I added rounds of SC and DC to bring each square to 8".

Comments: Maybe it's the never-ending snow and the winter that just won't quit, but lately I've been of a mind to crochet blanket squares.

The Flower Granny Square is one of my particular favourites, in no small part because it works up exactly as pictured and it makes a nicely flat and even square.

This is my first go with the Spring Breeze afghan square and it's another great pattern. Worked in one colour it's a bit more subtle, but still a really gorgeous square.

My plan is to get these three squares into the post today for a group blanket project. Gavin and I are away on vacation in just a few weeks, so I want to clear up some WIPs before then. Next up will be a pair of socks that have been on needles for a couple of weeks, and a sweater that just needs a sleeve and a half, leaving me with just a Retro Circles Blanket on the go. That looks like the perfect take-along project for airplane knitting!

Happy Friday one and all. We've just climbed above 0° so here's hoping a whole bunch of snow melts today!

I love your choice of colours, specially the natural square with the little flower in the centre. We have had a nasty winter here in the UK too but rain and flooding, not snow. But just week the weather has changed and we have sunshine - so welcome

That flower almost appears like it's floating on the square. Very pretty.

They are ALL pretty, but I love the one with two colors. That's a very cute pattern.

I love the squares. Someday I'm going to learn how to do them.
