Winter Woollies

Now that it is Winter, it's time to drag the blankets out of storage.
The first blanket I pull out is this, my very first Granny Square bla
nket. I started it many years ago (1980's) in High School and completed it about 14 years ago.I love pulling my blanket out of storage - it is stored in a carved camphor chest and it just smells divine! The blanket is starting to age, some of the ends are starting to fray and the colours are getting a little old & faded!
Does the green yarn that was used as the joining stitch look familiar? It's the yarn that I am using in my current crochet blanket!
