the finished granny square sampler
so here we go, within the past few days i puzzled and connected all those granny squares i crochet over the summer. i'm so very happy, at week 17 blair had her last post and i could just not wait any longer to finish up my sampler. there is a flicker group for this granny project. it is fun to file through the photos and very inspiring to see what the other crocheters were working on. i'm also very happy about all the stash i was able to use up. even my mother in law was happy to pass a big bag onto me. my sampler ended up with lots more squares than blair suggested. and that is the whole wonderful fun of it, i'm fine doing so. i can follow the instructions and just add squares, and be creative in putting them together. while i was puzzling i realized that because i was using up lots of different kinds of yarns, i ended up with very different sizes of squares. a bit of a challenge in putting them together into a kind of even rectangle. i had to add lots of tiny squares as well as rectangular pieces like those. o so very yummy to look at my newest blanket, makes me wanting to have the snow come down in a big way!
