About Me

My photo
Fayette Co, KY, United States
I am a country girl stuck in the city, for the time-being. I enjoy the country way of life, and practice that in my home as best I can by canning and preserving foods, cooking and baking from scratch, crocheting, living vicariously thru the many blogs I follow about country life. I enjoy learning about raising livestock, and glean from my past employment and personal experiences of working with animals to fuel some of my postings. I have 5 cats, who keep my life interesting. And I am also an amateur poet. Thanks for stopping by and checking out this Farmer-gal who is caught in town, for now.

Really! How Many?

Just how many granny squares . . .

does it take . . .

to make one afghan?

OK - so I got carried away,
and kept enlarging this afghan for my Mom.

I wanted to make something for her 81st birthday.
She is in a nursing home now. Her birthday is June 29th.
Hopefully I'll get this sewn together this week,
and mail it off to my Dad.

Oh! The answer to the question is: 64!

Take care everyone, and have a great rest of the day.

I am sure your mom is going to love this beautiful afghan. I'm sure as she wraps this lovely gift around her she will feel all the love that went into it.

I hope so, Julie - we are no longer that close, and I've not seen my family since Christmas of 2006, for a number of reasons. I just hope she likes it, and can use it, and that it will keep her warm. Thanks for your kind words. Take care.

Ah, the granny square. How well we know it here. All except me who is still waiting for a goat coat. But it will happen in due time I think. Congratulations on the afghan!

Marigold - I'm also working on a baby afghan of granny squares, but am getting burnt out on the squares. Ask the goatmother to use baby yarn for your goat coat - it will feel so good against your skin, and you will be the envy of all in the barnyard. Take care, from KY.
