My thoughts:

One of my favorite things I have is a blanket I got from a lady at church for my confirmation.  I still have it even though it has be more than 30 years it was made with granny squares which I have always loved.  I have lots of scraps of yarn and I am going to try out some of the patterns in this book.  My favorite pattern is on the cover.  It is the Contemporary Quartet.  I can use lots of my scarps to make the squares.  There are other I like too.  My favorite thing is to make a blanket and then give it away.  This year for Christmas – I am making blankets for my sisters.  I have two done – need to make one more.   I think it will be out of this book!
