Finished afghan

A few of you have requested to see a photo of the finished afghan. . . . . the one I switched from primarily black to dominate cream coloring.  It turned out beautiful using Vanna's Choice that I picked up at Michael's.  It's throw size. . . . .just perfect for little 'ole me when chilly nights arrive (if they ever do).

There isn't a pattern for the color scheme but you can see I simply alternated two blocks, swapping the cream and green with each other in the centers but then keeping the black and gold consistent in all of the blocks.  Instructions for granny squares can be found for free on the internet.

    1. how many balls of yarn did you need for each color? I'm thinking of this in 'my' colors. :)

    2. Sorry but I never wrote it down! Maybe three of gold, green, and black and maybe five or six cream?

  9. Diane, just wanted you to know I was so inspired by your afghan in progress in your earlier post that I ask my mom to reteach me the granny square. Like a good mother she mailed me the instruction booklet she has had for years. I love your colors? I plan to make this a deep winter project. It will be fun to work these by the cozy fire on a cold winter night. Beautifully done lady!
