Granny squares

Earlier this week I was still complaining about my lack of creativity and energy. It looks like both are coming back, as some of you predicted. K. wasn't the only one who had to recover, apparently. But we're back on track now! Both of us!

I don't know what triggered it, but on Wednesday afternoon I found myself rummaging through my craft supplies, looking for a crochet hook and some yarn. I have quite a stash of left over yarns, and I did remember this gorgeous granny squares blanket on Yvestown (also check out her photostream for more colorful projects). I started on the flowers and made a small stack of them that very same night. Yesterday, I went out to get me some white and a couple more colors. [This is totally besides the story but on my hunt for yarn I got "lost" at some point, but in a fun way. I came across a part of Paris I didn't know yet and which I definitely need to go back to some time soon, to check out the nicest little boutiques. I'll keep you posted!]

Anyway, it took me a while to find the appropriate white cotton but eventually I did. So, last night I finished off some of the granny squares. I don't know yet what I'll use them for, a blanket or some pillows. Though that was the initial idea, I'm afraid a blanket is a little bit of an ambitious and risky project for a restless mind like me who likes to change projects often. And it could cause some problems here too, as the girls are already asking who it will be for. Two pillow cases, however, would make both girls happy and maybe that would make a nice Valentine's Day present as well...
Need to think about it!
