Even though I have crocheted for over 45 years, I've never crocheted an afghan before. Too much work! I just started out making a Granny square to teach a class in how to make Granny squares. Then I thought I would make a doll blanket for my Granddaughter out of the squares. I took them on a 2 week vacation and when I got back I had enough squares to make a full afghan. So the doll blanket for my Granddaughter became an afghan for her.
This was so much fun that I crocheted a rug this week. I'll try and post the picture later.
