Tah Dah! Giant Granny is Finished!!!

Tah Dah!! Here it is...Giant Granny is finished. 

Yes, it has been fun but...whoo...what a relief it is finally done. 

I finished the border last night and I LOVE it!!

It is the perfect size for snuggling under on the cold snowy nights we have ahead. My son doesn't usually say much about my crochet but...he told me, "Mom, you don't give yourself enough credit. This is nice craftsmanship." Isn't he so sweet? He is 26 years old and still, "My Boy".

Now...on to my next WIP. 
I started this in January. It is for my daughter, as soon as she saw it she loved it and I told her she could have it when it was finished. Well...it's time to finish it. 
My Rainbow Granny Stripe blanket!

 Isn't it so bright and cheery? I love the yarn, it is Plymouth Encore DK 75% Acrylic and 25% Wool so it will wash up beautifully!
I just have a few more rows and the border of course. I hope to have this one done over the weekend.

And just for fun...Check out these darling Turkey Coasters! This is a free pattern at CraftPassion

I hope all of you have a Happy, Happy, Thanksgiving!
