Several months ago (June 2011 according to the photo timestamp) I made a bunch of granny squares. I had lofty goals in mind - a big blanket for the couch in 2 lovely shades of green with a reddish-pink as the accent color. So I go to work. I probably spent a month or so making squares. And then I got bored, and ran out of the red yarn shortly after that. So...the squares got stuffed into a basket and I hadn't thought about them again.
Until last week. I was working on some headbands and needed a soft green and VOILA!! Well hellooooo granny squares!! I just so happened to have a pillow form lying around so I got to work. It took me a bit to get the hang of joining them together (I decided on a half-double crochet with right sides facing), but after a few rows I was rolling. Er, joining. Whatever.
Anyhow, here's the finished product! I can't decide which side I like better, but I love it. And I have quite a few leftover, so this pillow may be getting buddy. Hooray for granny squares!
