Giant Granny Square Blanket Progress

I love this blanket.

When you give a stressed out person some thick yarn and a big crochet hook, things move pretty fast. Haha. I started working on this giant granny square blanket over the weekend and quickly discovered that it is a yarn eater. Is that a thing? The blanket "eats" it up so fast that I am almost out of the yarn I bought on Friday afternoon. After a certain point in the pattern, each round needs almost an entire ball of yarn! That's why the green yarn ball is so tiny. I need to stock up next time I go to the craft store. (The yarn I am using is Loops & Threads Cozy Wool in Fleece, Pewter, Stone, and Spearmint.)

I wanted to share a few photos of my progress so far. I love how the colors look together! The next color round will be a navy blue and then I will start repeating the stripes until it is done. I think I will make it 84 in. x 84 in. square.

It is the perfect project to work on before going to bed each night. I am so glad I finally decided to start this blanket!

How are your projects coming along? Do you like to work on something before bed too?
