Granny Squares Aphgan

Over Christmas Break, I re-arranged a few boxes and shelves in my hobby room (aka the first bedroom on the left, which was Firstborn Son’s room for a long time).
In there, I found a plastic tub with crocheted granny squares, and a skein of yarn to put ’em together with. Done before Middle Son’s wedding, but set aside. One of those UFOs which tend to pile up in a crafter’s place. (hobby parlance = UFO — Unfinished Object)

Anyways, I decided since the squares were all done, getting them together would be a good project to donate to the Relief Sale.


made of BERNAT Super Value 4-ply acrylic yarns, using a size I crochet hook.
there are 96 granny squares. Measurements, including border, are 45″ x 63″

the photo was taken in the Fellowship Area of the Mennonite Church of Normal, with the blankie resting on the planters, under the skylight.

I was told by the Relief Sale Volunteer at the Handicrafts Booth that a nice older gentleman bought it for $45, for his wife to use on her twin-size bed at a nursing home.
He wanted her to have something new and pretty, making her room more homey.

~~love and Huggs, Diane
