So the other evening my daughter Jill - the one with the excellent taste in yarn colors for afghans - stopped by, toting three huge bags stuffed full of yarn. Here is what she brought. (My photography skills leave a lot to be desired, but I think you will get the idea.)
When I went to pay Jill for the yarn, she wouldn't let me. She told me it was my birthday present! Wow!
She sat and visited with me for a time. We came up with a few ideas on how to use those colors in the next two afghans. Of course I couldn't stand it until I made some sample granny squares.
These are the squares for Jacob's afghan. Jill suggested I find a way to make an afghan with stripes, so I will sew the squares together in alternating rows of black and red.
I think they are going to be such fun to make. I guess there is no real rush. Jacob, the youngest, is only 10. I just want to be sure all six grands get their graduation afghans. And it gives me something to do that gives me pleasure. Win - win!
