The Scrapghan Project of '09

Granny square scrapghan
i cleaned out my yarn closet and organized my leftovers by weight. i discovered a large amount of worsted weight and fingering weight scraps. i decided to use my reynolds andean alpaca in cream and the worsted scraps/small skeins of handspun to make a granny square afghan. i'm using a J hook. the strips are 6 squares long, and I think I can get at least 7 rows.

it takes me about a year to finish a blanket, so i'm not in a huge hurry. i'm crocheting 6 squares and then seaming them together, b/c i know if i finish all the squares first and then have to seam, it'll never get finished.

now if only i could figure out what to do with all the fingering weight scraps, my stash would be down to almost nothing. we won't count the fiber stash in this equation.


  1. Wonderful crochet! Love how the colours work thogether.
    I've nominated you for an award on my blog, hop on over to see... I really appreciate your creativity!

  2. I'm inspired by the yarn closet cleaning. I desperately need to go through all my stuff and get it in order. The blankets a very good idea. One day I'd like to do one of those mitered sock yarn blankets from scraps, but I kind of doubt that'll even happen. With my procrastination I'd be lucky to get it done before I die.

  3. I found your blog today through make do and mend. So much lovely yarn! I would recommend holding fingering weight yarn doubled, and that will approximates worsted weight.

  4. I'm doing the same sort stash busting blanket, but with fingering weight... this is what I decided on
