All-Star Granny CAL

Posted by sallenlouise on October 9, 2007

Hi guys!
Well, I have  started a local Stitch Wits group on Ravelry. I also decided to make a CAL group, Stitch Wit Cals. If any of you are over there, come on in! If you didn’t know, Stitch Wits is the local group that I started for fellow crochet/knit/yarn enthusiasts! If you are in or around the Burleson, TX area, RSVP here. We meet every Tuesday for the time being. As well as one Saturday a month.

 

Here is the CAL that will begin in November.

Pattern: All-Star Granny
Finished Size: 54″X68″ Each Sq = 3 1/2″
Book: Granny Delight Afghans  project #3, page 13
Publisher: Leisure Arts, Little Books, 2000

~I bought my copy from Hobby Lobby for $2.79

MATERIALS:

  • Hook: H
  • Worsted Weight Yarn
  • Color A: (Blue)26 ounces (740 grams, 1,785 yards)
  • Color B: (Natural)17 ounces (480 grams, 1,165 yards)

If interested in the cal, let me know! If you are not a Ravelry member, that’s OK. You can participate here, just POST a COMMENT. I will be adding a page just for the CAL. So tell you crochet friends that you think might be interested! It will be fun!

I’m not sure how long this would take generally, but there are a lot of squares. (192 actually!) My Goal will be to make 5 squares a week, so 20 squares a month. This will have me finished by November 2008. It will take a total of 13 months. WOWSER! LOL!

Now, let’s see how that all works out! Come on, it will be a lot of fun!

Family Stuff 

Well, hubby ended up not heading home yesterday….today for sure, lol! He may just have to turn around and leave tomorrow, so, we probably wont get to see him for very long at all.

I have a major headache, it’s turning migraine, I just know it. 😦 I’m only here because I had to e-mail a customer.I hope this will go away before getting any worse.

Selah is annotating Great Expectations, I will be helping her later with definitions. Rachelle found out she was double jointed yesterday. She scared herself, and thought she had broken her thumb. Well, now she just keeps playing with it and freaking mom out. I do not like it one bit, lol! OK, I’m outta here for now.
