Afghan--Completion Coming Up!

The end is in sight for the granny square afghan in Minnesota Vikings colors. I have all the squares made and the ends woven in. I am going to crochet the squares together and then put a border on it and finally weave MORE ends in. I love making granny squares but all the little ends drive me CRAZY! That said, guess what I'm making now? Yep, you guessed it--granny squares! I have another afghan that I am making. This one is for a cousin of dh in Germany. She's been suffering from severe depression because of the death of her grandson a few years ago and it has gotten very bad and she has been hospitalized. I hope that by sending her an afghan, that she knows that by wrapping up in it she'll be receiving hugs and love from us. Anyway, back to the Vikings 'ghan, here's a picture of the squares laid out on our spare bed:

Monday's Link to Free Crochet Pattern (18 April 2011)

I've always wanted to do a graph ghan but in between what I have on the hook, what I've obligated myself to make and just being plain ol' chicken about it I haven't made one. Here is a cute pattern for one. It looks like it might be a tad bit small so either it could be used for a pillow, a square or add on to the ends and make larger. It would be very sweet for a baby. Hope everyone has a nice week...
