Yarn Lovers Dream

On our recent trip we stopped by a yarn store and I was slightly overwhelmed with all the options. Where I live I haven't seem to find yarn yet so it was such a blessing to be able to get some yarn for a few projects I'd like to accomplish over the next few months. 

I am planning on making a granny square blanket. I have crocheted now 4 squares...out of 200 something. Call me an overachiever, I don't care. It'll take some time, but the colors I picked were beautiful. This is the type of granny square I'm making (It's called a "squircle"--square/circle together. Click on the picture to see the pattern/website):

That is not a picture of my work above...I'm still working on making it look beautiful like this. :) However, all the squares I've done are the same size so far, so I count that as a feat! 

I'll share my progress with the project in few weeks--hopefully I will have more than 4 squares done! We'll see!
