Next month is my grandparents’ 50th wedding anniversary, also known as the golden anniversary. Huge milestone! I thought that as a gift I could crochet a nice blanket for them.
Here is a rough sketch of the project:
It will be a mini-granny square blanket that’s 32×26 squares or 832 squares. Each square is about 2″. Doing the math, I’m going to have to crochet at least 20 squares a day to complete it by Oct. 19. Go go go!! If I had known it was their anniversary sooner, I might have started earlier and had less cramming. That blue square afghan I was working on: on hold.
Yellow is the obvious choice for “gold,” and red is a lucky color in China. Orange is also kind of a golden color (maybe?), but mainly, my mom thought that a bright red and yellow blanket was too, well, bright. By the way, for the yellow, I bought the Caron One Pound yarn; it is HUGE.
