Thank You, Bananaleg and Horsygirl321!

Thankfully, I had enough yarn for 3 more rows for a total of 13 regular and 2 rectangle, I wanted something to make the ends look a bit more special, but it has led to a design question...Single crochet, granny shell, or some other finish stitch I don't know yet? I have the black from joining, orange, brown, and green left to work with.



Suggestions are greatly appreciated. =)

WOW! Everyone is doing so awesome!!!!

I wanted to pop in and mention that we have been discussing doing a granny square swap over here. I wanted to let you avid granny go getters that I have offically opened up swap sign ups today. Check out the thread and see if it is something you might enjoy. If you meet the requirements PM with your completed questionaire!

Keep up the great work!

Completely rainbow obsessed SAHM to 3 & hoping to add #4 to our family this fall!

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

Oooh the granny swap sounds amazing! I must calm myself and think about joining... Also, a quick question/sugestion: I think it might be helpful to have everyone in the swap use only 100% acrylic yarn. If someone uses something different like wool it might felt while in the washing machine. Thoughts? (I'll post this in the actual swap thread, as well.)

of course they do, crocheterbee2!!  A few months back Nfirehazzard had a lovely one that she did...I tried the pattern, too...but put it aside for a different one.  So many grannies...so little time!! =]

How are your beautiful granny projects coming along, BennuBird??  I love how the Autumn colored one is looking...great use if the different granny motifs, too!! 

Not much on my part...paper crafting is coming to an end and then full-time granny making! whoo hoo!

Howdy Kittymom13, Thanks! I decided on just a single crochet around the fall afghan looked best after trying out a few. Tonight I got out to a couple craft stores for more yarn for yet another couple projects. LOL

Here is the fall completed


    No progress on the bedroom babette granny other than one motif square I had to make. The black/white/gray single granny is now 25 rows and I decided to add some smaller squares just to break it up a bit. Scrappy granny ripple is coming along nicely with 35 rows complete. I will get some pics loaded soon.

    I finally chose my yarn for the spare room afghan and decided to make it a hexagon granny and I started a Halloween colors granny I may give as a gift. Add all the granny type afghans to my others and I have 10 afghans going...I think I'm in over my head and loving it! Grin

I'd be afraid to add up the afghans knitted and crocheted that I've started and serious want to finish!   Shocked
I know what you mean though! =]
I'm making Granny's Daughters for the said swap...then gearing up for partners in Ga Ga for Grannies Swap!!
I'm still working slowly on the Hibiscus one, too.  I have a green knitted afghan for my daughter that will be next on the list (oh, yeah, and the patchwork sampler project that I'm knitting away on-sometimes)...and always, always some granny project! =]

Happy Stitchin'!
Can't wait to see the pics!
