The other day I was at a local vintage/resale shop on my lunch break. They were selling a few "doll blankets" at $5.00 each (the aqua part you see above). The blankets measured 25x20 inches each. I bought the aqua one, and I decided to just crochet a giant granny square all around it to make it a human-sized afghan. I was hoping to be able to find the same aqua color, but I went to three stores and nothing even comes close- everything is too blue and not aqua. I guess I'll just keep the square going with the pea green (I thought this color looked great with it), cream and brown. Maybe I'll think of some other accent colors that would work. I also might go back today and get the other two blankets. They had one that was a dusty orange color and a pink one, I think. Hopefully I'll be able to finish this while it's still cold outside!
