Monday Makings… Life in the Crochet Lane!!!

I absolutely love to crochet!!!  If a day goes by without a hook in my hand… I feel sort of lost!  So many of us talk about all our projects we are working on and how many we have stashed away… I am the Queen of that!!   I thought I would take a moment to see if I could check some of those off my list this weekend…  And the big answer was NO… I just decided to add more to my list…. Love to Crochet!!!

So why start another Afghan while working on our CAL???  Yep that’s what I said to myself…   I  am donating  this Beautiful Bright Sunburst Granny Afghan to a Fundraiser… It has to be done in just a couple of weeks… So I had to get busy!!!

If you remember from last year… I made a Beautiful Cream and Scrap Sunburst Granny… I loved it so  much that I thought I would make another!!!  This pattern is from Priscillas Crochet… You can Click Here to get her Free Pattern!!

  1. You have a great eye for color. I would never have seen the possibility of the gorgeous afghan you made by only looking at the pattern square.

  2. The Purple Poncho :

    I’m exactly the same way, SO many WIPs, and then start something new! Funny. LOVE your afghan-gorgeous!

  3. I love to crochet too! Happy Monday!

  4. Two very large projects on the go!! Your Sunburst Granny from last year is very beautiful! and I love the colours you have chosen to use on this years Bright Sunburst Granny! Such happy colours!!

  5. Love the way yours turned out last year! I don’t see any where in the pattern from Priscillas Crochet to join the squares and I LOVE the way you did it! Are there instructions anywhere?

    • Thanks! For a joining tutorials you can look at my week 2 CAL Pattern… I listed 2 ways to join Granny squares… For last years blanket I used a Flat Braid Join… If you do a Google Search for that technique you should be able to find instructions…

  6. I noticed there isn’t a number of squares listed, joining method or any kind of outer border on Priscilla’s pattern for this afghan. Normally I stay away from any square smallerr than 12 inches but this one is so pretty, I might try it. I guess the number, joining, & outer border is for the maker to decide. This might be good. If I get tired of small squares, I could finish it off with a huge border. I think it is wonderful you are doing this one as a fundraiser. It is so cheerful & it would go with almost anything. I bet it raises lots of money.

    • It is a great pattern… Yes… you make as many squares as you like… to make it the size you like…My first one I did a Flat Braid join… this one I think I may just Sc them together… I hope it raises a lot of money too : )
