Is it Time to Crochet With Fall Colors?

Went through my stash the other day to see what I could put together without buying more and came up with these colors that seemed fitting for fall.  It's made up of Red Heart colors in Aran, Claret, Cornmeal and Linen.



Granny Square in Fall Colors - 17 Rounds


Granny Square in Fall Colors - 30 Rounds
I haven't decided yet what this should be.  It's about 32" square now so I could finish it off for a baby blanket, but it's not really the colors most people would probably choose for a little one.  The colors are close to team colors of the San Francisco 49ers or the Washington Redskins, so if someone was a fan of either of those teams they might buy it for their baby, or I could go just a little larger and advertise it as a stadium blanket or lapghan.

Thoughts?




To play along on Work-in-Progress Wednesday, make your blog post for Wednesday be about something you're working on - some type of craft, renovation project, landscaping, even that novel you're writing. You can play along even if it’s not Wednesday; I leave each WIP up until the following week. Copy the code below Rosie's picture and paste it into your blog post so that others can follow too, and see the rest of the projects that are posted here.








Make sure to click 'You are next' below to add your link here so my readers can follow it to your blog post.

** Note ** Several of you are signing up at the bottom but you’re not putting the WIP Wednesday link on your own blog. If you don’t, your readers won’t be led back here to see what others are doing and what WIP Wednesday is all about. It’s not hard, just copy the code beneath the photo above and paste it into your blog post. If you’re having trouble, please let me know and I’ll try to walk you through it.

I think you've found a fine color combination. I'm doing the same, trying to use up the yarn I have on hand.

I like it as a lapghan, or even bigger, for cuddling on the couch in. I have a couple of those in my house, and they are very popular. The first one I made was claimed by my 14-year-old son, so I had to make myself another. LOL Mine are about 48" square.

I love it! I think it would make a great stadium blanket. :) I am working on using up what I have too.(Hence the Monster Scrappy and the Summers Dream Round)

got my post in for the week.
I think your granny square might be large enough for a lap blanket now by the looks of it on the back of the chair.
I've been wanting to get some lap quilts made to put up for sale. Too many things in the works all at once as usual.

It would also be pretty on a tablescape...set catty-corner over a cloth for Autumn. Lovely job!

I love this idea. Now I have to keep busy so that I will have something to show each week.
