finished the flower sunburst granny blanket

My flower sunburst granny square afghan is complete!  Made from Berroco Vintage Chunky, it’s super heavy and thick, so I know it will be toasty (although I’ll never use this yarn for a blanket again — it’s perfect in every way except that it’s too expensive).  It covers a double bed, but the picture below is taken on a queen so you can see it all flat with the cute ruffly border I added.  This has been my most expensive afghan, but it might just be the one I’m most proud of, too.  Here are the finished pictures.

I hope you like it as much as I do!  Now off to make some tea…

    I am so proud to have you for a grandchild. Your work is beautiful. About the lace for towels– Try crocheting your lace and then sewing lace to towel with needle and thread. That is how I first learned. I am working on crocheted sleeping mats for the homeless., using plastic grocery bags. Will let you know how they turn out.Keep up the good work.
