Over the weekend, I finished this granny square afghan in different shades of blue and red for my paternal grandmother (not the one I'm giving the shawl to). The pic mutilated the colors, but there are 3 shades of red and 6 shades of blue. I've successfully used up all my blue yarn scraps! I've still got a few full skeins of blue but the scrap is gone! There is RHSS, Bernat, and Vanna's yarn all mixed up in there. Schizophrenic, eh?
The afghan measures about 49"x 61" with the border. Its taller than grandma...she's only 4'10" but she loves everything big. Her furniture is huge. I have to use my knee to climb on her bed, rather than just being able to sit on it like a normal sized bed. The afghan sort of has a retro feel to it and grandma is all about the retro. Can we say plastic covers on the sofas?
My eye is feeling much better. Its still slightly swollen, but it only looks like I haven't slept well. It doesn't hurt anymore and its not itchy. Getting better...woot!!!
Quote of the weekend:
Piper: "Mom, I think you've got a mustache."
Me: "I do not. Husband?"
For the record, I do not have a mustache, just baby fuzz that all women have!
