Blankets, hats and a little granola

I have mentioned this before, but I have recently wanted to make a granny square blanket, and after seeing this one, I knew it had to be done.  So I started making these squares and am realizing that this is quite the feat.  Im kinda tired thinking about it.
but here is what I have so far (along with ben's toes...)

I am so excited about them and its so fun getting to be done with something so fast (as in the squares).  And its so fun changing the colors and stuff.  Some squares are not my favorite color combos, so I may have to nix them in the end.  we'll see.
and my neighbor asked for a baby blanket and hats in lime green, orange and choc brown, so i jumped on that

after I finally finished poor julia's hat order.
sorry julia.  I am going to send you this little extra one to say thanks for waiting so long.

and after seeing darby's granola bars, I decided to make some.  I couldnt find coconut oil (but I found coconut butter, is that the same thing??) so I looked up smitten kitchen's recipe and made some of hers.  oh deb, you always know how to make me happy.

they were delicious.  I am going to make some not so healthy ones with m&ms and peanut butter chips and choc chips today.  im clearly on a health kick.
