Terracotta Garden Granny Square Blanket
Some time ago (well a long time ago) I saw this blanket on Lucy's blog Attic24 and loved it. Knew immediately that I wanted to make one four our couch, but in our living room's colours, mainly terracottas, browns, with accent of cream. And as I had already worked with Catania, a nice cotton yarn that comes in lots of colourways, I knew I would use this one. Don't remember if I had these colours at home already or if I got them then. I hooked happily away a bit, took these two pictures (a try to use an opal plastic bucket as a light box *lol*)
and then I forgot about it because there were other projects that were more important to me...

Just not sure yet if I will join four squares that are the same or four that have just the center and outer row in common. But I have enough time to decide on that :-)
