@ Baby Cakes:  Very pretty!  I love the shade of red that you choose. Smiley

Ugh,  I went to my parent's house to collect the pretty blue, green and brown yarn that I had lying around in the craftroom to use on this blanket.  Come to find out, my little sister decided to use it on a project for her boyfriend! Kinda cool that she's in high school and crocheting stuff, but at the same time, I had plans for that yarn. LoL.

So, going shopping for yarn this weekend.  Any suggestions on large quantities of yarn (that feel soft) for cheap prices?

I'm so jealous! Everyone's projects look awesome.. meanwhile, I've been too busy whipping up hats, and scheming my son's Halloween costume. I still haven't picked the colors for my log cabin, but I'm leaning torwards "purple, green, orange" all in dif shades. Here's what 2 days worth of playing with MS Paint has yielded, I love the purple one so much! I just need to add purple to my yarn budget.

This one is 2.5 layouts stuck together..

This is one complete layout..

I've some quick math and I think I'll need 54, I'm working with 4 colors with a fifth in reserve, so 12 each of the 4 main colors & 6 of the reserve to be scattered around.  That will give me a blanket about 3" X 4 1/2" or a little bigger.

And to let you all in on my insanity: Pictures.

All 24 currently completed squares.

Four squares fitting into a single inch on my cutting surface.
They're not perfect, but it is supposed to be made of handspun, handmade, rough made wool yarn for a rustic cabin.

I got the "yarn" at a thrift store.  I think it's needle punch or crewel thread.

12 done. So that makes me a bit behind on the "square a day" part, but I'm a heck of a lot further ahead then I would be without the inspiration and chatting here. 
The stack (minus 2, because I was trying out my joining idea, and I'm not sure if I should do it that way or not.)

one of the ever so basic one colored shell stitch squares Smiley

I'll take proper camera pictures once I start putting it together.  Web cam in progress pics should work for now Smiley

What a great coincidence.  I just started crocheting granny squares as a way to work through some of my stash.  I'd love to join your Crochet along if it's not too late.

Hmm...  I'm a bit late as well, but I may be able to do two a day if school and family cooperate.  Grin
