So after nearly a year of crocheting granny squares and ripping them up, I finally have a direction for my afghan. The yarn I am using is Impeccable, by loops and threads and it is available at Michaels.
I start with a simple square.
Then I finally learned how to add on around the square to make it bigger.
This is what it looks like with the two colors together. As I was taking the photos, I was thinking, “What a coincidence that the granny square uses the exact same colors as my tablecloth!” But I don’t think it is a coincidence. I think I really just like those colors together
Anyway-because sometimes I have to “SEE” the finished product before it is complete, I had to put a couple of squares together (which I learned how to do by watching You-Tube videos on my snow day Wednesday.) And it worked! So this weekend I will be working on the squares that I have so far and trying to decide just what size I want the finished afghan to be. This one is for the living room, so it doesn’t have to be too huge. Just large enough to cover up a little bit while watching TV.
And because I’m a little OCD…I found a way to stack my finished squares by using a container from the dollar spot at Target and a crochet hook. I also found that if I run the yarn out through the opening in the side that I could keep the ball from rolling all over the place. Sweet!
Anyway-here’s to progress! And moving forward. Hope you have a great Saturday. Later today I will start putting together some yummy SuperBowl treats! Since my team isn’t in the Superbowl, I might as well sit around eating lots of high calorie foods instead!
