The second scrap yarn rectangular afghan is finished. I am not sure why I am "into" granny squares right now but is seems an obsession, perhaps a distraction. My hands have been having arthritis issues lately and I have found that crocheting is easier on them than knitting. So here is a pix of the afghan. It is from a 1976 pattern leaflet by Leisure Arts. Of course when using scrap yarn you do not get a definite color pattern so I just went with what I liked till the yarn ran out. One change I made from the first rectangle afghan was I added a single crochet between the double crochet clusters along the sides. I felt the first afghan was a little tight between the stitches.
I love it. In the background so can see the original rectangle granny. Also in the picture on the chair is a granny square afghan my grandma made me in 1973. I treasure it and it has not had the rough treatment that the ones I have made have had. 2nd scrap afghan is 65"x55". One thing I like about this pattern is the length. Yes I know I can do that with granny squares but remember all those tie ends I had to take care of in the Daisy Afghan? I don't enjoy sewing. The border is again Bunny Mummy's Double V Edging. I really like it. It is just enough to look pretty doesn't overwhelm the afghan.
