Today I finished Black Beauty!
My teddy bears love her!
Beauty started out as a throw but she turned into a blanket. Her finished size is 6 feet by 7 feet... 14 granny square rows by 16 granny squares or 224 granny squares total. You may remember that I used 16 different colors plus white and black to outline the granny squares. The yarn is Caron Simply Soft, a 4 ply, 100% acrylic super duper very soft yarn. I used an H hook.
I have lots of left over granny squares (67!) from this project and am already planning what to do with them. But it's a secret so you will have to wait to see what I do.
I thought I would NEVER finish the edging - it just ate up the yarn. I just had enough of the off white color to finish the last round. I wish you could see her in person as I must admit she is quite a beauty.
I can't get the teddies to leave her!
She is almost too large to lay out in our family room. This photo is slightly out of focus but I was standing on a small step stool holding the camera way up above my head to try to get the whole blanket in the photo. What lengths we bloggers will go through to get our photos. LOL!
All nicely folded. This is the fanciest edging I've ever done. I slightly modified an edging I liked from one of my pattern books.
The black and white really makes the granny squares POP!
My next project is to crochet a baby throw for our great nephew, Lucas, who is due to POP out into the world in November. When I mentioned to my SIL that my hubby and I would become a great Uncle and great Aunt... she replied we already were "GREAT." Wasn't that sweet?
