My first FO Friday in months! This giant granny square baby blanket was finished some time ago, but because I somehow managed to go two months without a single blog entry, it was never properly documented. I made it for the first grandbaby of my colleague Penny, and she reports her daughter and new grandson think it’s fabulous.
Pattern: Great Granny by Katherine Eng, from Crochet Today! Jul/Aug 2010
Yarn: Bernat Berella 4 in Soft Taupe, Burnt Orange, Burgundy, and Natural; Patons North America Canadiana Vintage in Oatmeal and Brown. Total yardage due to use of partial skeins, approximately 500 yds.
Hook: US H
Satisfaction with end product: As usual, the acrylic became soft and drapey once washed and dried. I’m happy with how it turned out. And, as mentioned above, its recipients were quite pleased, which pleases me. Because with a gift, it’s how the giftee feels that’s important.
