Giant Granny Goodness, Part II

Standard

Hello, hello and happy…well, you know. 🙂

My giant grannies are coming along nicely! In fact, I am on a bit of a crochet jag and have started a dozen projects– or more– in recent weeks. Oh, my, I am having fun! And I haven’t skimped on the housework; in fact, I am also on an organizing crusade and attacking areas that have been neglected for, well, maybe years?

I am simply on a color spree: combining, mixing, matching, layouts, rainbows, ombre, triads, contrasts…it is a good thing I have a bit of a container fetish, because my cleaning frenzy means more empty bins to collect my color nonsense and project dreams.

Here’s the one for the grannies, rounds 7-12 or so:

I tend to be a bit matchy-matchy…so the challenge of putting dissimilar colors adjacent entertains me particularly.

The lovely afternoon sun…my favorite time to crochet.

A trio of riotous color contrast:

And the real challenge begins! A preliminary layout:

The burning question…how many more rounds???

I like it as is, but it isn’t very afghan-size, yet…only about 3×3.

Twenty rounds– my original plan– will be too much?

Perhaps fifteen. And then a kitschy border, for certain!

The more garish color to chew, the better! So rainbow-y and satisfying.

And just for fun– my little crochet-hinderer, below. I was able to complete my latest set of rounds because she went off to the neighbor’s and asked to bake something. 🙂 My sweet neighbor was happy to comply and home she came, several hours later, with yummy chocolate treats to boot. Happy summer!

An update on another project, too…the edge is finished, and the little gift set sewn!
