I am about halfway finished with my grandson's graduation afghan. I'm afraid I will have to send my daughter Jill back to the yarn store as I am running out of one color and will likely need more of a couple of colors to complete the border. Jill is very good at picking out colors of yarn for me to turn into beautiful afghans. I warned her that when I am ready to make the three graduation afghans I have left to make, I will just send her to the store and let her choose the yarn.
Jill proved her taste in choosing yarn at Christmas. She gave me two very large gift bags full of these beauties.
She said that after making afghans for the grands, I might enjoy making one just for me. She was right!
I couldn't stand having that yarn just sitting in the bags without applying a crochet hook. After a bit of experimenting I came up with this design for the granny squares.
I found that the variegated yarn showed up better sandwiched between the solid gray than next to the teal. True colors don't always show in photos. The blue is a lovely teal color. The yarn is soft to the touch and will make up into a cuddly afghan just right for afternoon naps.
So thanks again, Jill. This one is going to be fun. :)
