Here are some pictures of my completed granny blanket in some beautiful earth tones. I made the blanket for a couple of my photographer friends so I hope to see it in use one of these days soon 🙂 Until then, here are some quick snaps of the finished blanket. Isn’t she beautiful? 🙂
So here’s a close-up peek at my granny blanket (still working on the border so not ready to show the final product). I decided to use a zig zag crochet to connect the squares. This is the first time that I’ve done that, so I was kind of winging it, but I must admit that I love the way it turned out. I think this might be my new favorite way to connect grannies!
You know those projects that you start, put down, forget about, rediscover several months later, continue, put down, forget about (repeat 8, 000x’s)??? No? Really? Well, sadly, I am very familiar with these. So is my mom. Maybe its genetic.
Anyhoo, about a year ago, I looked at the gigantic pile of scrap yarn that the horder in me said, “keep!”, and decided that I would granny square it away. A plan. A truckload of scrap yarn and a plan. That’s how it started.
I got about halfway through the ever-replenishing scrap yarn pile, and decided that I had made enough squares. Recently (about 4 months ago), I discovered those squares and decided that I was going to re-cover an old pillow. Another plan 🙂
I will spare you the rest of the tedious timeline and just show you that I finally finished my pillow today and I love it!
What project have you been putting off? I’d love to see!
