Merry Christmas 2007

I was going through my yarn room
packing excess yarn for friends
when I got side tracked and
found all this variegated yarn.
I decided to make this afghan while
on our Christmas Vacation. I finished it
on Christmas morning.
It's a basic 6 row granny square using K hook.

My husband gave me the latest Vanna White
book for Christmas and I made this afghan with yarn I had with me.
It's called a stacked log cabin.
In Vanna's book she uses 4 colors
but I only had enough for two colors.
I used teal blue and aran.

I'm now working on another ripple using the remainder of
all that variegated yarn. Here's a peek at it.

Your afghans are beautiful! You do such wonderful work, and have such an eye for color.

I have a stash of variegated yarns too, and have started a square afghan just like yours. Aren't they quick and fun to do?!

I can't say it any better than Candy already did!!!! I love all your projects. On the varigated granny square, how did you do the black? It pulls the whole thing together so nicely.

The granny square afghan is the basic square. With Black I double crocheted around the whole square. In the corners I did
3dc,ch2,3dc then slip stitched them together.
