An Afghan 30 years in the making
Today I finished putting together the 100+ granny squares for an afghan that I made 30 years or so ago. The wool was so old it cost $1.39 a skein and was from Woolworths. This was pre-internet and done without any kind of a pattern. I think I had an example or picture and worked from there. So I had all these blue varigated squares, each one incorrectly made. And after searching the internet for a way to put them together that didn't involve sewing them, I picked a method and in about a week I finished a task I started when I was just out of high school. I remember working on it, sitting on my green loveseat between my parents in thèir almost mstching recliners. This memory brings tears to my eyes, as I remember how much I was loved and how much I miss those two wonderful people. Now if I could only decide what to do with it.
