Nephew’s Graduation Afghan

I finally finished The Grand Project! I first began planning this back around New Year’s, so it has certainly taken long enough.

Here it is, washed and laying outside to dry. I figured I better get this done while we are having a bit drier weather; since the monsoons began back on June 26th, we’ve had rain almost every day. But today and tomorrow are supposed to be sunny, hot and dry. Hopefully this will dry today and then I can package it up and ship it out this week!

Here’s a close up of one corner, showing the color schemes of the two granny squares that make up the afghan.

And here’s the border. I chose Pattern #46 from Around the Corner Crochet Borders: 150 Colorful, Creative Edging Designs with Charts and Instructions for Turning the Corner Perfectly Every Time by Edie Eckman.

I really love how this turned out. But I also really liked how the Blended Granny Square Afghan I made for my niece turned out too!

I still think I may have to make one of these for myself! Or maybe a pink / purple one for Miss Munchkin!

Pay It Forward and Crochet Update – 365 – 145

Back in January I posted on here about a Pay It Forward 2011 Meme. The idea was to send a handmade item to the first three people that commented, and those people were to post on their blog and send to the first three that commented there. I am happy to report that I completed all my gifts and even got them shipped! Missus Wookie’s was the last to be received and she very nicely posted a picture of her scarf at Missus Wookie’s Wanderings.

I made several of those scarves and still have a few in reserve, waiting to be gifted.

My nephew’s graduation afghan is coming along beautifully, don’t you think?

I have four more squares to join on and then I can begin the border. I really do like this Blended Granny Lapghan pattern, both how it looks and how quickly it works up. In fact, I’m seriously considering making one for myself, which means I will have to go through the painful “pick a color scheme” process all over again!

The scarf pattern, Quick Feminine Scarf, can be found on page 97 of
