 not neon colored "red heart acrylic yarn" granny squares.

I finished this 2 years ago
( I think I posted this on Bloom, my old blog)

anyway, it's a favorite around here
 between the kids
dogs and cat

I lurv color
lots of color!

Right now favorites are hot pink, fuchsia
tomato red
so I guess that is reflected in


 I am making another blanket
maybe some pillows with my stash yarn

Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.

Get off the couch Mimi!

Do you have a stash basket?


  1. Your afghan is just beautiful Camilla. I love anything with lots of color. Color makes me smile!
    I do have a stash basket, although it is kind of small...something I am working on changing! :)

  2. I made a granny blanket for each of my kids years ago. I loved how it used up bits of yarn. I did not like sewing it....Yours it beautiful!! If I did another blanket I think I might stripe it!

  3. That is so beautiful! I wish I could say I had a stash blanket like that.

  4. Gorgeous stuff.
    And kitty... oh dear, I am smitten.

  5. no way! love love love the blanket. pure ivey, it is! and i love the pinks reds and oranges, too. i am working with colors too, of late, and it's sort of like knitting...will spill the beans soon!

    i want your cat.

  6. i love your blanket and LOVE the new color combos you're working into those granny squares!

  7. Mimi is too cute!! I love upside down kitties!!

    That would be basketS...with emphasis on the plurality!! :) :) (oy.)

  8. Love everything about all that colour, just lovely!

  9. LOVE this post camilla! your blanket is beyond gorgeous and your kitty too. i agree, wool is the way (the only) way to go. it's been many years since i've made a granny square, but i'm feeling really tempted right now. have a wonderful day!

  10. those colours look amazing together! wish I knew how to do it (i've tried with pitifully low success!)

  11. Mimi is the cutest cute. I love how she is upside in the picture. Did you take the picture and flip it or was she really upside down?


May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.
