Granny Square

I don't know if you remember when I posted about my summer knitting goals. It was in this post and the one right after it. Well, I have one of those goals completed!! It is the Granny Square afghan that I made for the baby with some of my stash acrylic yarn.

I picked the colors before I knew for sure what sex the baby would be. It was a good thing there is a lot of blue in there. And I am glad that I like to save left over skeins, because this afghan was made with a lot of left overs.

I like how the afghan turned out and "Au" likes it also. I told her it would need to be washed before she used it for the baby, but that is a small price to pay.

I enjoyed making this afghan, but it sure doesn't help the carpal tunnel at all. My thumbs have been acting up for a couple of weeks now and probably not just from the crocheting.

I have also been knitting a pair of socks. Since this picture was taken, this sock has been completed and the other sock almost knit down to the heel. Sock knitting is taking place when I get tired of packing.

This is the last main week to get the packing done. ES says he will be home next week to get the rest finished up and get us on the road. It will be interesting to see how much I can get done before he gets home.

Off to do some more packing. Happy knitting & spinning.

The blanket turned out very nice :). I like crocheting when I need something mindless to do, kinda like the fan and feather in knitting :). I know you are excited to get this move over with, I know you will be off line for a few days when you move, so I want to send a prayer in advance that you will arrive safely at your new home.
