WIP New Blanket

The last post for the year 2012,
 now don't fall off of your chair.
Yeah, you are seeing me posting 2 days in a row.
I wanted to show you what I have been working on 
during all those days my hubby was in the hospital.


 It's called Granny's Puzzle Pieces.
I found the pattern in a magazine called 
BEST-EVER AFGHANS the December 2, 2011 issue.
  Basically it is just another simple granny square laid out 
in a design to resemble inter-locking puzzle pieces.
I still have oodles of Vanna yarn and that is mainly 
what I have been using here. My couch is ox blood 
in color and it wasn't the best choice for the photo since 
there is a sort of border row that I am doing in a rust color. 
If you look closely you can see it. The one in the magazine 
has the same border only a white color.


I took one shot with flash, the second without.
It's just another project to keep me out of trouble 
and to keep me sane during this trying time. 
I do not know what I plan to do with this one 
when it is finished. Making blankets is the best 
thing to do when the winter weather hits.  
Brrrrrr.....it is sure cold outside! 
As far as New Year's resolutions  
 I have not made any, that way I won't 
be disappointed in myself if I fail.
 
Wishing all my good blogging friends the 
         best in the New Year with health and happiness.

  2. This will be a really nice blanket. I've seen a few of these around the Web on Ravelry and such. You do need something to pass the time on all the hospital and dialysis visits. Hope you have a happy and blessed 2013!
