First of all, thank you for coming by and reading and for those lovely comments.
Earlier in the fall we got a new LYS in town. I visit regularly and some time in September I was wandering in the shop not knowing what to knit. I know the owners and they know me, and the other one pointed me at the direction of a worsted weight yarn saying: "Look at that and make something nice out of it!"a voice behind me saying "Do you suppose you could make mittens with it?"
Those of you who are here close by, you can find the yarn and both patterns in Rovaniemi Lankamaailma.
Wool with you,
PS. I did not use any particular pattern for my granny square blanket. "I wonder how this will look" is the best approach. But there must be a basic pattern for the square in the internet that one can follow. I used size 2mm hook and thin fingering weight yarn. And thank you for the links, there was beauty awaiting there.
