Hi all! I've been doing the crochet-along for a granny square a day for a month in order to help myself keep pace in making four granny square lapghans for my bridesmaids. I finally finished my last lapghan today and just need to show the world how excited I am!

The theme for my wedding (which is in 4 weeks @_@) is rainbow and whimsical. For example, my bridesmaids will each be wearing a different color dress. I wanted to make each lapghan special so their borders are in the colors of my girls' dresses!

I crocheted the first one, purple, back in June for my first maid of honor:

With her lapghan I wanted to make squares which represented different things in her life, such as the wedding, her boyfriend, and her favorite color (purple ~_^).

Lapghan number two is this lovely green number for my second maid of honor:

I wanted to do something different and decided to make a big ol' granny square/rectangle for her. My girl is very eclectic and I thought a hodge podge of colors would mesh really well with her personality.

The lapghan I made in August is for my cousin bridesmaid:

I tried to go the rainbow route this time. Each horizontal row is focused on a different color.

The final lapghan that my aching wrist just finished making (by the way, I also work at an ice cream shop and scoop very hard ice cream every day) is for my youngest bridesmaid and cousin:

Don't let the border fool you; it is actually turquoise in color. For her I also went the rainbow route and a large granny square-rectangle.

This has been a crazy summer full of crocheting, working, and planning my wedding. And my wrist is happy to finally have a bit of a break.

The Doctor: I do!
Jack: Who looks at a screwdriver and thinks, "Woo, this could be a little more sonic."?
The Doctor: What, you've never been bored? Never had a long night? Never had a lot of cabinets to put up?

these are beautiful, and I'm sure your bridesmaids will love them and appreciate all the work you put into making them for them instead of just buying something mass produced Smiley

Very pretty.  Great idea for stashbusting too. =)
