It's my very first granny square afghan! This afghan is a true representation of what the granny square is meant to be--a scrap buster. Not one skein of yarn (other than the binding color) was purchased with this project in mind. It's made strictly from pieces of yarn left over from other various projects and some yarn that I inherited from others.
It all started like this...
Here are my stacks upon stacks of squares, millions of ends just waiting to be woven in.
Have I ever mentioned how much I HATE weaving ends in? Well, I do. Hate. Ughh. But one at a time, I got it done.
Here's some proof:
I edged all of the squares in a turquoise color (Pound of Love by Lion Brand--only $4.00 with an awesome coupon deal!).
It seems like it took forever.
You know you're spending too much time crocheting when this is the only way your dog can get your attention...
I spent some time laying them out to evenly distribute the colors.
It came together beautifully (keeping in mind that beauty is in the eye of the beholder). I realize not everyone shares my love of granny squares, bold colors, and funkiness in general. If you leave a comment telling me how ugly this is, I will delete it so please don't waste your time. Granny love only, please. I know there will be some haters. Keep it to yourself and go and comment on something you do like. Even if it's elsewhere. This is how you should handle all of your blog comments. Thanks. (Whoa, someone just got a little soapboxy! Yeah, you don't want to mess with me today. Or any day for that matter.)
And here she is, in all her crazy glory:
I'm in love!
