My plan was to have a blanket with just classic granny squares as I love the simplicity of them, but I also want to somehow mark the first of each month and important days. I don't want any particular blocks to stand out from one another, so this is what I've gone for...
So you know this is the day to day square!
I'm using this pattern for the first of each month, two rounds of subtle circles, then back to the usual granny patten.
I will be doing something slightly different for our anniversary, which is only a few weeks away so not long till you can see my idea :)
