granny blanket : 2 more squares

Hello, there!  
Is it just me, or are these weeks whipping by faster than I can chug down a Pumpkin Spice Latte?!  I can't keep up these days, and I've stopped pretending that I can.  
My planner is chock full of places to go and things to do.
Life is pulling in every direction.
I've got more thoughts in my head than I have hours in the day.

And sadly, this blog is the first thing to fall to the bottom of the list.
Well, let's get on with it.  There's grocery shopping to be done, a car to drop at the shop, a kid to take to the orthodontist, homework to be done, dinner to make, oh and I'll be thrilled if I can squeeze in a five minute shower.

WEEK FORTY THREE || Ribs and Lace

This square was hooking up a little large (which I knew it would based on the pattern and the hook size she used). I had to make a few alterations and omissions, and I even wrote them down, but now that I read my notes, I can't quickly figure out what I wrote to be able to translate it to you. :(  What kind of blogger am I?!

It is week 43 friends, but I have not hooked up this week's square yet.  Hoping I can snag some crochet minutes this week and share two more squares with you next Monday.  You can find the pattern here.

granny blanket : fan dance & birthday flower

Happy Monday!
I have missed you all.  I'm here to day to share 2 of the 3 squares for the 12" granny blanket.  No time to chit chat; I have a boatload of stuff to get done today (including grocery shopping so that I can feed my poor family this week!).

WEEK FORTY || Fan Dance

 I discovered in the last round that I made a mistake in the yellow round.  Someday, I may go back and fix it, but a bigger part of me wants to leave it as a little symbol of imperfection.

WEEK FORTY ONE || Birthday Flower
By Chris Simon

This square is in honor of my husband's birthday.

I will be sharing two more squares next week to be caught up on this blanket.  To see the list of patterns we're using, please see this post.

Thanks so much for visiting!  
Have a fabulous week!
