I started a granny stripe afghan. Okay, I started two.
I first saw one of these on a podcast (Workshop Girls, sadly gone), and I wondered how I had missed such a fabulous thing. I knew I needed to have one. I have a deep and abiding love for a granny square and I know I will love the granny stripe just as much.
I have many afghan WIPs but Granny Startitis would not be denied.
Besides, I had this yarn in my stash and I didn’t really know what to do with it. The blanket on the bottom is made with Red Heart in Gray Heather and Blacklight. I loved the Blacklight colorway on the skein, but every time I tried to make something it never looked right. Mixed in with rows of gray makes it fabulous.
The one on the top is Vanna’s Choice leftover from other projects with new skeins of gray to balance out the colors that don’t look so great together. I’m determined to use it all up.
I try to keep one of these projects under my desk so that I’ll put in a shell or two during any homework breaks I want to take.
