I always wanted to make a granny square blanket but I could not find a good reason to make one. Now that my brother and his wife are expecting their first child I got my reason to make one! I checked the stash and chose some warm colors because the baby will be arriving somewhere in autumn. So, here is what I have after 5 days of work - the diagram included. I hope to have the finished blanket tomorrow - joining those 30 squares really takes a lot of time and patience!
