Faythe, You May Want To Skip This Post

Because I am writing today about a thing that she really hates: the Granny Square. Now, normally granny squares do nothing for me, I have never crocheted a granny square and I figured I would live out the rest of my days without making one. Until last night. Last night I was browsing knitting blogs and I came across a crocheted blanket called Babette.



Wow. This is not your ordinary granny square blanket. The unsymmetrical symmetry of it all. And the colors! I found lots of pictures of Babette blankets with awesome color combos, and I am hugely inspired to do one of these myself. Maybe along the lines of these colors:



My grandma would be so proud of me! Faythe, not so much.

PS This is my 200th post--Yay, me!

Where does time go? so here it is early on Wed morning, Dave is sleeping in because he finished tax season yesterday and and you have made me LOL several times already. I say" make a sign and go stand with the beggars down the hill to say to say:

Hi Karla,
Now I can even post comments to your blog. What a concept! It's time for bed, and I haven't started packing for my trip yet.
