I was in more of a crochet mood though and I fancied making a cushion instead. I loved Hazel's Cobblestones cushion but the circles weren't quite what I had in mind. Luckily ravelry came to my aid with this free pattern for a circle in a square. Perfect!
Right, now to decide on colours... then I remembered Tikki knits recent post featuring a gorgeous log cabin blanket that she'd knitted. Well inspired by that I had a rummage around in my yarn stash and pulled out these colours
After a bit of hooking later I came up with some of these happy little squares.
They're so cute! I'm going to join them together to make the front of a cushion and then the back will be a giant sized solid granny square I think. Probably a row of a circle colour and then a cream row in between. I've also got an idea for a border but I'm going to keep it up my sleeve for a while. I'll see how the cushion turns out first.
So a bit of a convoluted post today but thought it might be interesting! For more inspirational posts visit A Baby Smile's Inspiration Monday posts
