HELP!! I’ve called this blanket my ‘Mini-Scrap Granny’ for so long I’m having a hard time coming up with a new name and it deserves a much prettier one, one that could help increase its perceived value at auction. ‘Mini-Scrap Granny’ simply doesn’t sound like a special unique one-of-a-kind hand-crocheted item, now does it?!
I decided the ‘Light Raspberry’ color should become granny’s edging and, not able to quickly find one I liked, I made up this simple little scallop: 1 sc, skip 1, 1 hdc, chain 3, repeat.
I admit, I just fudged things whenever I came to a corner. lol. I probably did each one a little differently.
It’s so satisfying to have turned a bunch of yarn scraps, with the help of several skeins of Red Heart Soft’s ‘Light Yellow Green’,
into such a pretty little blanket! Size: 38″ x 58″
Well. . . at least I think it’s a pretty blanket, although I kind of regret including those dark olive bits – wince.
I sure hope several people at the silent charity auction think it’s pretty too, so the bids will go up, Up, UP. I’d love to hear that my blanket brought in LOTS of $$$$ for the mission in Haiti!! But I’ll be happy with however well it does.
P.S. I should have mentioned that I named this other afghan, which, although started in August 2011!!, is still in progress, “Flower Garden Granny”.
P.P.S. Thank you for all the great ideas! So many of you mentioned Wildflowers, Field, or both; I’m going with ‘A Field of Wildflowers’.
