Finally Done!
Finally!! I got her done this weekend. Just finished up weaving in the ends before I snapped this picture! I love it!!!! It's a nice size, about 5x5, very soft, and a great weight. Perfect to snuggle up under on those cold days. I used Red Heart Soft, twelve colors I believe and the edging is simply four rows of half double crochet.

As those who know me, I am so addicted to granny squares. I don't know why, but I love the way they look when I get them sewn together. I knew when I started this blanket I did not want each square to be alike...I wanted my afghan to have a folk art feel to it...and I think it does! This will be one of my treasures!
She's Done!!Granny Square Close Up
Here it is laid out flat. It definitely has a folk art look to it. I couldn't be more pleased with it. Of course, it looks so much better in real life.

Now that this is done, I hear Babette is calling to me! It needs to be finished.

I managed to squeeze in some time to get another wrap knit up for my etsy shop. I am a little attached to this one. It's so soft and I love the red and brown colors together. I made it nice and long so it can be used as a scarf as well.
Shades of Red and Brown
I think I like it best worn as a wrap. But it's hard to decide. I used a variety of yarns in different textures size 10 circular and a simple garter stitch and accent rows of cream with a button whole gives it yummy texture. I decided that it needed no fringe on the ends. You can see how many ways it can be worn!
