Finally! Holy sheep! It took me 20 years to make this afghan. I’m so glad to finally be finished! And not just 95% finished, 100% finished!
When I was a little girl I did a lot of crafts, but I never had a chance to use all this yarn. In my late teens I started crocheting granny squares, determined to put the yarn to use. I’ve been crocheting granny squares ever since.
To be honest, I’ve been mostly done since 2017, but I laid the project down for a while. I’ve just finished crocheting the last few squares, sewing all the squares together, and crocheting a thin border on to tie it all together. This afghan will go back to college with the Son, to keep him warm in the air conditioned dorm.
He will give it a good home. We spent a lot of time in 2017 coming up with this design. We call it his “minecraft” afghan (maybe you’ve heard of the videogame?). Anyways. If you can’t make it out, it’s a palm tree on a beach. Fitting for him as he is going to college in Florida!
