“Earth to Granny” Blanket

Here are some pictures of my completed granny blanket in some beautiful earth tones. I made the blanket for a couple of my photographer friends so I hope to see it in use one of these days soon 🙂 Until then, here are some quick snaps of the finished blanket. Isn’t she beautiful? 🙂

Sneak Peek – Connecting Grannies with Zigzag Crochet

So here’s a close-up peek at my granny blanket (still working on the border so not ready to show the final product). I decided to use a zig zag crochet to connect the squares. This is the first time that I’ve done that, so I was kind of winging it, but I must admit that I love the way it turned out. I think this might be my new favorite way to connect grannies!

Connecting Grannies…What’s your preferred method?

As I reach about the midway point for this granny blanket, my mind is already racing ahead to “how am I going to put them together?” I normally whip stitch when connecting grannies, but that method is not sounding very fun right now. Besides I want to add a little spark in my life! What better way than to experiment with granny connection methods 😉
I will say that I plan on connecting the squares with a dark chocolate brown and I want it to show. Any advice or suggestions? I’d love to hear your favorite method! Thanks (in advance) for the input.
