Grandma Purl's Blanket

I came across this a while back and thought it would be fun to take part. So, here's my 8x8" square for Grandma Purl's Blanket. The deadline for the squares to be received is November 10th so I'll be sending this off in a day or so.

I knit the first thing that came into my head - a shamrock motif. It's really hard to capture on camera but you can just about make it out. Why is it sooooo hard to photograph reddish colours?

Anywho, I'm going to attempt to make one today with the Three Legs of Mann on it. Then there will be two hand knit squares reflecting my Irish heritage and my husband's Manx heritage somewhere on one of Grandma Purl's Blankets in America! How fun is that!
