I started making granny squares awhile ago. I wanted to make a bag, and I did, and it was super huge, and I wanted to line it, and that didn't go so well, so I got over the bag, ripped it apart & started to make it an afghan. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. The colors are a little off in the picture. The blue is really more turquoise, and the green is more olivey. Comments & Constructive Criticisms are always welcome.

I really like this!  It's different than the traditional granny square blanket, and I think it really works well.  It seems very modern-looking to me.

Neat!

Wow! I commend you on your afghan powers! I made an afghan once.... Never again.

This is just sooo pretty it makes me *almost* want to make another afghan.

This is super cute.  It has inspired me to do something different with my granny squares when I make another afghan.  Great job!!  Cheesy

Thank you thank you for all the compliments! CaterpillarPeacock I looked at your blog & saw your afghan! Its awesome. Take a break & try another. What I love about granny squares is that you can do 1 & feel like you've accomplished something! Or do 1 in a little bit of time & get your creative energies out. If you find it hard to complete a whole afghan maybe you'll like this idea: My best friend & I each made 15 squares. We sewed them together & each took 2 turns going around to complete a nice sized afghan for our other best friend!

I DO like this idea! It reminds me of making old school friendship bracelets out of embroidery floss when I was a kid. You each pick a colour and only work those rounds. Good times. Thanks for the inspiration!
