Currently Crafting: Granny Square Blanket

I recently started crocheting a granny square blanket for our master bedroom.  I haven't made a granny square blanket in many, many years.  I think the part that got me was having to constantly change colors.  I much prefer to be able to cruize along crocheting while watching a tv show in the evenings or when we are on our way to visit others.

After seeing granny square blankets all over Pinterest, and Flickr, I decided to make another one.  This time, I selected a variegrated yarn.  Noro has a beautiful collection called Silk Garden.  The collection comes in many different color variations, so there is sure to be a color-way to match your decor.

Noro Silk Garden is made of 45% Silk, 45% Kid-Mohair, and 10% Lambs Wool.  It is a worsted weight, hand dyed yarn, and is one of their most popular yarns.  Once you see the beautiful colors and start working with it, I am sure you will love it as much as I do!

For the blanket shown above, I ordered 12 balls of yarn, and a size H crochet hook.

The yarn is available at Yarn Market, Jimmy Beans Wool, and Knitting Fever to name a few.  If you shop now, Yarn Market has a sale on Noro Silk Garden, and their shipping is really quick.

Here is an up close picture of 314, Purple, Green, and Gold. 

What projects are you currently working on?  Have you recently crocheted any granny square pillows or blankets?  I would love to see what others are working on!
