granny square afghan

I finished up this granny afghan that I started last April just in time to give to my friend and her new little baby boy.






I'm pretty sure this is one of my oldest wips. I'm very happy to be able to cross it off the never-ending crafting to do list. And, this just goes to show that starting projects without a recipient in mind will almost always become useful in the long run!





The afghan is 38 inches square and is made with a combination of Red Heart Soft Yarn and Bernat Satin Solids. See all the details on ravelry here.

  4. Hey that looks great! I love the idea of one big square. I bet it does feel good to get that crossed off. My list of things to do makes my head hurt.

  6. That's so pretty! I love all the colors. I did one, years ago, in just red and white, for my grandma. I miss crocheting.

  8. I love it. Especially that teal blue color that you spaced through out. It helps pull in the other colorful colors.

  12. Crocheting just doesn't make sense in my brain. Grammie has taught me a million times and I always fall back to my two needles.
