I decided I needed a pillow (or two) to go with it. I have always wanted to make a granny square afghan, but since I made a ripple afghan, I decided to make a granny square pillow instead.
So I have been crocheting mini granny squares.
They are a little over an inch big. (Or should I say small?)
They only take a minute or two to make (talk about instant gratification), so it hasn't taken all that long to knock them out.
I laid them out in a planned random pattern. By planned random, I mean that each row and each column only contain one of any particular color. Even the edges when placed together won't repeat any colors. I plan on putting a border around the edges, so the border randomness wasn't necessary unless you are compulsive like me and have to have it that way!
I have started binding them together...something I know nothing about, and am just winging it as I go along. The work is not bothersome to me because it goes fast, and once again I am instantly gratified as soon as another square gets attached.
All that being said, my tree is begging to be decorated with Easter eggs, so this pillow may have to take a back seat until I get some eggs done. I'll be sure to post a picture when it is finished.
