A bunch of friends decided that it would be good for us to get together and put together an afghan for her.
The rules were simple:
- Make a 6 inch square from any craft
- Make it from a pre-determined list of yarns & colors so that we'd at least be consistent
- Make it with love.
So, we ordered the yarn, and started. Some people are knitting, some are crocheting, some are using tunisian crochet, and some are doing a combination thereof.

I had forgotten how much I really do like knitting granny squares. They're cute colorful projects that take no more than 20 minutes to finish. Here are some of the ones I made:
I also took the time to learn some basic tunisian crochet and make a square out of that. And I found that while it is rather a neat method -- it takes a lot longer than just crochet'ing a simple granny square. BUT, tunisian crochet makes for a wonderfully THICK fabric.
Once everyone is done with their squares, we'll get together and sew together this wonderful blanket
I think I might be making more granny squares in the future. Several years ago, I made myself a wonderful granny hexagon blanket, which I love to pieces. I might have to make myself a full granny square blanket.
