My Square is Ready...
Hello, and how is everyone today? I hope you all had a great weekend. Onto business...
Granny square swaps are great stash-busters. I am participating in Debi's swap over at Dly's Hooks and Yarns. When I chose the colors, I was ready for some "not-Christmas" colors, if you know what I mean. And I wanted a pattern I had never made before. So a-surfin' I did go!
I ended up at Sunshine and Whimsy's free pattern, the 6" Sunburst Square. I pretty much followed her pattern, except (and there's always an except -- I hardly ever follow a pattern exactly)... I made the last row dc's around with 2 dc's in the V-stitches. Here's hers for comparison:
It's a quick and easy pattern to work up. And I get to mail my square to Debi before the deadline. I'm trying to redeem myself for that mix-up over at SIBOL with the Jan Eaton square.
Okay, back to Christmas WIP's. I'm making garlands, buntings, whatever the correct phrase is, for this year's gifts. Oh, and one for my house, too. Plus I have a new great nephew on the way, be here in the spring. This pattern just might be the one I use for his blanket!
Photos later this week on Christmas progress.
