Weekend Crochet

Since my sister and her family left last week I’ve turned into an anti-social hermit and only left the house for work.  My partner and I are both a bit like this – we don’t need to see / interact with people much to be happy!  Consequently I managed to get quite a bit done over the weekend.

Firstly, it turns out that I can’t get one of my lovely blue wools that I was working with anymore.  While I am a bit sad that I won’t be able to do any more squares with those colour combinations, I still have about nine finished blocks and will be able to make them into a lap blanket.  This also means that I can now switch to acrylic (which is machine washable, great for blankets obviously) and crochet a blanket in the squares that I’ve liked during this crochet-along.  I’ve decided to use a lot of bright feature colours (one per square) but link them all with neutral beige and brown tones.  Below are the first two squares – what do you think?
