A while back I had posted a picture of the latest crochet project I was working on. In the picture were four measly granny squares. It didn't look very exciting.
But about 40 more squares later (and a whole 'lotta edging too I might add) I finished my first granny squares afghan!
And within minutes of placing the blanket on my bed, this little girl decided the blanket would henceforth be hers:
(I'm still working out how to tell her it's actually mine)
My favorite part is that scalloped edging. It was easy to do and finishes off a blanket in a most lovely fashion!
The pattern is compliments of Lucy, over at Attic24. She has a wonderful tutorial with lots of pictures if you are a newer crocheter like myself.
Right now I am working on ANOTHER Garden Squares afghan for my mom. She took one look at my finished blanket and said, "If I buy you yarn will you make one for me?"
A day or so later my grandmother informed me she ripped out the knit blanket she was working on and wondered if I'd use the yarn to crochet HER a Garden Square blanket.
I've got a lot of crocheting ahead of me.
