The Forgotten Blanket

Untitled

8 years ago I started crocheting blankets for all three of my kids. Somehow I lost the mojo and the squares were put away in a bag... Earlier this spring my youngest son helped me go through my yarn stash and we came upon said bag. When I told him that most of the squares were for a blanket for him he really wanted me to finish it. So this has been my main project this summer. I had made about 1/3 of the squares I needed so it felt like a manageable projecs. I had some yarn in the right colour in my stash, but some of the dye lots were not the same. It's most obvious in the blue squares, but he doesn't care ;)

He was so happy when I finally told him it was finished! He has been following the progress this summer and since I told him I was going to finish it I had to set other projects aside. And the other two blankets..? No, I'm not going to finish them- I asked the teenagers if they wanted a blanket, but they were not interested.. I think the squares I have made for my daughters blanket might become a pillow. I'll have to make a few more squares though.
