Summer garden granny is finished !

I finished the attic 24 summer garden granny square blanket this weekend ..I really liked doing the join as you go method.. I did 3 rows of half double crochet for the border and then Lucy's border that she did on her granny stripe blanket. Both the links for the square and the border are at the bottom of the post.






More progress on the Santa stocking.. Doesn't look like much , but theres alot of stitches in there !! The son who I am making this for leaves for college on Friday .. He will be 6 hours away, and I am one sad but proud Mom.. Going to be a hard couple weeks as we adjust to this ..
Hope you all have a great week , Thanks always for all your nice comments, and your visits to my blog !

Good morning friend. The blanket turned out oh so lovely! I bet you can, hardly wait to cuddle up with that gem! I will certainly be thinking of you on Friday, as you take your son to college. I remember doing that with Drew, 5 years ago. It was hard! It is always hard to say goodbye, but I know that it is a vital part of their growing up too.
We Mama's will always be Mama's, even when they are grown!!
Hugs,
Kris

Wow! This is amazing! I'm also working on a blanket with the same pattern, but not sure when it will be done! So many distractions at a time! Hope mine is coming out as beautiful as yours!
Happy new week! :)

What a beauty, Priscilla!! I love it!

Best of luck to your son in college--I'm sure you'll be driving down for a few games :) Our youngest and oldest sons went seven hours away and it does seem like a long way, but with skype and email, etc. the distance isn't bad at all...

Your blanket is gorgeous. I love your mix of the white with the beige and of course all the other colors. I'm working on something similar, but on a smaller scale. Blessings to you and yours, have a great day. Heather

Soooo in love with this new blanket. All those colors are calling to me. Can you make me one also? =) pulllleeeeez? I especially love it pictured beside your blue and white daisy blanket. So, if you should decide that my face is cute in begging mode AND decide to make me one, please make me a blue and white daisy blanket also (for the sake of presentation so when I open the box I can see them side by side). OK? OK!

Big woeful eyes looking very beseechingly at you...hugs, A.
