SO, I gathered my 3 fav colors. RED, WHITE, and BLACK. All the same name brand...wound them together and MAN is it a fast way to crochet. One block did the work of what it would normally take to do 2. I ran out of yarn but I almost have a 24x24 piece created. I have gotten so much done in such a little time. Not to mention the colors ROCK.
I was thinking this would be neat to do for a School Colors for a college student, or pro football team colors. Or 3 shades of RED.....The Red, White, and Black combo work if you are gift giving for a True Blood or Twilight Fan. I also would love to see a scarf made like this. I bet you could get alot done.....
OH Perfect for Harry Potter Fans. Do a scarf. The characters always have scarfs. I will jot that one down for later.
I am making 7x7 granny squares and putting them together to make a blanket. I am sure any method would be great. I will not be putting alot of attention into this so granny squares work great. There are tons of granny square patterns and tutorials.out there.
I will keep you posted. I know this could be finished in like a month if I really worked on it....but I am busy getting crafts ready for the blog.....Let me know if you do this....I want to see your blankets.
Now is an awesome time to get started on those holiday gifts.
