Carried Away

If you have read this blog for any length of time you know that I sometimes get carried away with quilt sizes and they turn out LARGE or they have A LOT of pieces or HUNDREDS of fabrics or some sort of extravagance.

It turns out that the tendency to be carried away applies in other areas of my life, too.  Crochet, for instance.

I finally finished this afghan, after about a year of on-and-off work.

It is about 65″ x 100″.  Yep–LARGE!

It is larger than a queen size bed.

It is not fancy.  Just a diagonal granny square pattern than can be found HERE–https://perigrineseyrie.wordpress.com/2009/09/04/diagonal-granny-scarfafghan/

It easily covers two or more people, depending on size and how much they wiggle when they are tickled.  In some ways, being carried away is nice.  Hopefully, it is a reflection of general generosity, a character trait I hope to develop.

  1. I’m sure it’s a reflection on general generosity. Absolutely it is. =) I couldn’t make the link work, so I am not sure how it is a granny square, but it would be fun to do in diagonal rows – tricky without a pattern, but fun. =) Would those be yarn scraps, too?

Thanks for taking the time to comment. It is nice to hear from you.
