Blanket Part 1




Last week I showed you some grannies I was working on, to form an afghan in the end (and who knows when that end will be; could be twenty years from now). In the meantime I have sixteen grannies total now. And the good news is: not bored yet!! Because I don’t want to leave the terrible chore of removing all loose ends until the whole afghan is finished, I already put together these sixteen grannies and got the loose ends done. And now on to the next sixteen…

    1. My problem exactly! That's why I bought a book with patters of 200 different grannies, hoping I will not be bored after making ten grannies :-). Thanks for visiting! Liz
