Wet and Dreary Saturday Hooking

Well woke up this morning to dark, dreary and wet weather. I was hoping to crochet all day today anyway, so yay! for the weather, now I can put my feet up and work on my new project. I have a love of buttons and ribbon and yarn and (you get the picture) anything pretty then I'm addicted. I have been trying to tidy up my studio space and came across lots of small amounts of Stylecraft Special DK in various colours and was wandering what to do with them. So I had a little play and came up with buttons.

I thought with Autumn upon us I wanted more darker colours than bright. So I choose Lavender, Pomegranate, Spice, Aster, Lime, Saffron, Petrol and Fondant.

These little cuties shall be turned into buttons and attached to granny squares to create a tactile blanket, just need to decide what size to make the blanket. I'm leaning towards a large snuggly blanket. I have decided to use cream for the granny squares, I was going to use white but feel cream works better with my colour choices. 

I shall post more photos as I go, not sure how long this project is going to take but I'm loving it so far.
