Drum Roll Please!

I have 2 big announcements...


As you all know I'm really good at starting afghans. But look, I can finish them too! Yes, I amaze even myself. :)

It was a very breezy day and not the greatest day for picture taking, but I still managed to get a couple of okay shots.

This afghan started when I decided to write a basic Multi Color Granny Square pattern to share. When I chose the colors and started the square I had no idea it would turn into a full fledged afghan. But when I saw how great the colors of the finished square looked I knew it would be perfect for Cyndi's MIL. Her favorite colors are green and purple. I can't wait for her to open it on Christmas! I really think she'll love it. :)

The inspiration for the "square in a square" design came from Lucy's Big Blanket over at Attic24. Her blog is great, you should check it out if you haven't already. :)

I still plan to do a join-as-you-go tutorial. I took plenty of pictures as I was making this ghan but because I used soft white to join the squares the pictures look a little washed out and nondistinct. So I'm going to have to re-do the photos with different colors. Hmmm... I wonder if that one will grow into a whole afghan too? You never know with me... >:)


I hope this doesn't come as a shock... But I have decided not to continue the monthly square crochet alongs in 2010. We will finish up the Calendar Ghan for this year, and I will still design and post squares to this blog, just not in the CAL structure and not on any kind of a time schedule.

HOWEVER, I will be conducting a CAL beginning January 1st. Click here for more details. I hope you'll join us! :)


  1. I am off to read about the new project for 2010. Of course I want to be a part of it and have not even read about it yet. I am currently catching up on my Cal Squares.
    And I love your new afghan. The colors are a great combination. I have one done in those colors also.


I'd love to hear from you so please leave me a comment. I will try to respond asap. :)

I don't, however, love to hear from spammers so I've had to turn on comment moderation. My apologies if it takes a little while for your comment to show up.
