To infinity and beyond!

I'm tired of the numbers. I've never been a number or math person. So no more.

I finished this afghan today. I was This Close to finishing it but for a reason that I no longer remember it got put away and somewhat forgotten about.

When my grandmother died a little over two years ago I inherited her yarn stash. Much of it consisted of hundreds (I'm not exaggerating here) of small balls of whatever yarn was leftover from skeins when she finished knitting a sweater. There is a pretty wide variety of colors but the majority of it is pastel. Because the sweaters she knitted were for babies.

I found this cool pattern booklet of afghans called Scrap Wraps. All of the patterns use black yarn as a background along with any other yarn scraps and leftovers you have on hand. One of the patterns was this one that is called Granny's Favorite.

I like how it turned out. It's a little bit Gram - all of her pastel yarn, and it's a little bit me -the black and the handiwork.

Getting closer to the bottom of The Mountain of Unfinished Projects...


  1. Great job, Amy. It does have some Grammy in it.

  2. I love it, Amy, it's beautiful!!!

  3. It's gorgeous! I love the contrast between the black and the colors!
