The adventures of the granny afghan

Crafting is an addiction : no matter how much you tell yourself you should stop because you already have too many items, you have to make stuff. It's part of what you are. I managed to stop stitching when I came across my folder of stitched projects that never see the light, but I still need to crochet from time to time.

Luckily mom needs potholders and doilies, that's already something. And I'm thinking about trying crocheted fingerless gloves for DBF.

But at the moment I crochet granny squares. When I see all those lovely afghans out there, I feel a bit ashamed to leave mine in progress for so long. Last time I worked on it was 2 years ago ! That's where keeping a blog is really useful.

So for those who just arrived, this afghan is DBF's idea. He wanted a blanket with many squares of many colours, like old times. So I started this in 2011 and I'm still working on it.

The random colours are not so random, of course, and it's a good exemple of probability and alternations. The only concern is that I won't haveenough cream colour to link them all. So I will need to make an extra border. But so far, so good.


Me voilà de retour sur la couverture en carrés commencée en 2011 pour DBF. Ca avance pas mal cette fois....
