This is my current project. I am making my first granny square afghan throw. It is intended as a wedding gift. So a little ambitious and maybe not such a bright idea. But if I was going to put in all the time, I wanted it to be for something special.
I used the brides favorite colors and wanted it to look contemporary. I started with the pattern at:http://www.justcraftyenough.com/2012/08/iron-craft-challenge-16-owl-blanket-for-a-baby
I ignored the owl motif and used only two colors.
The wedding is one month away and I am about 3/4 done with squares and then need to join and do the trim.I have spent one month on it so far so I think I still have a chance at finishing.
Wish me luck.
