groovyghan planning

groovyghan yarn

I am making a blanket for my daughter's 5th birthday this year. I had a completely different blanket planned but the more I kept looking at the Groovyghan, the more I liked it. It fits her personality so well, so I think she will love it!

I picked out the colors, most of it is from my stash, I only bought a few skeins to round the scheme out. I'm using Loops & Threads Impeccable Solids, if I'm not using cotton, then I'm more than likely using this stuff, it's awesome and very affordable, you can get it at Michaels. These are the colors I'm using:

aqua
soft fern
grass
soft rose
rouge
heather
soft taupe
white
butterscotch
lavender
amethyst

Since I want this to be a surprise, this blanket could take some time, which is why I'm starting it so early! The birthday girl turns 5 on December 8th. Luckily (?), she starts school at the end of the month, so I can pull it out in the afternoons instead of after bedtime.
