I used Caron Simply Soft Lite yarn - it really is soft, and has a pretty sheen to it, and I love the colors available. So with my little crochet hook and my yarn I started off.
A nice stack of squares. They are approximately 5" x 5"
Another stack - love the colors. . .
And here is Mr. Lincoln to give us some idea of the size of the little blocks. I'm not sure how many blocks I need, but I know it is a LOT. I want it to be big enough to wrap up in, on a cold winter night.
I needed more black yarn and since this yarn isn't carried locally, I had to place another order. It has been five days since I ordered and checking the FedEx tracking I see that the yarn has gone from Dallas, TX to Phoenix, AZ in 5 days. What are they using? The FedEx Wheelbarrow?
Have you ever made a Granny Square Afghan?
Fuzzy borders are from Picmonkey - love that program.
