Channeling my Grandma

My current project-that-may-never-end is an afghan for the baby that I started late last fall. My Grandma tought me how to crochet when I was 8 by showing me how to add a decorative edge to a washcloth. The next summer I made a blanket for my dolls then promptly decided crocheting wasn’t for me and I haven’t done it since.

I thought it might be fun to pick it up again and see if I like it any better than knitting. I ran across this pattern in a book I picked up from the library and loved the simple yet modern feel of it. I had originally planned on making the blanket for myself but decided to downsize when I realized just how many squares I’d have to make to accomplish it. As it is, I have about 1/3 of the squares done for the crib size blanket at the moment. I’m using a yarn made from bamboo that I purchased from JoAnn’s. It’s pretty soft, and comes in great colors. I think I need to add another color, or two, to my threesome – although I’m not sure which to choose yet. I have two more skeins to get through before I decide.
