Make it Monday ~ Sunny Blue Hawaii ~ 5/18/15

 
 
I gave a sneak peak at my current project, Sunny Blue Hawaii, a few weeks ago.  I'm loving these colors together.  I had started out using the turquoise, white and gray, but it just wasn't doing it for me.  After I switched to the bright yellow, that was it!
 

I'm crocheting a simple granny square and letting the colors do all the talking.


Of course, the more colors you use the more ends there are to weave in.  I don't mind weaving in ends but I like to do it at the table usually while chatting with my mom.  I crochet a bunch of squares and then sit down to weave in the ends.


In the following picture I have about 10-12 squares done.  I need 35 and currently have 25 complete.  I like to crochet while I watch TV.  I have a bunch of DVR'd shows to watch so hopefully I'll knock out the last 10 in no time.

 
What do you think of this combination of colors?

  7. I think you've nailed it with the name "Hawaiian" - it certainly reminds me of somewhere tropical with blue sea and golden sands with white wave foam. That blanket is going to look so crisp and clean - heavenly :) Learning to crochet granny squares is on my list of things to learn this year! Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace
