Part 2 of the Scrap Afghan
I've been having way too much fun making the 2 round squares using up my scrap yarn. I haven't bothered to start attaching them together because there are still a few colors I want to add. I have to wait though until I make about 4 hats from each of the Caron One Pounders I have so I can add more colors. I really only want this afghan to be yarn that I can't really use for any other project. So I will get back to making hats so I can get to that small ball of leftover yarn.
I will probably end up making the afghan for a child or teen and donate it. Each square is about two inches so now I just need to figure out how big I want the blanket to be and then I can decide how many squares I will need. I also need to figure out what color I want for the outside border. I was thinking black but my husband suggested something bright like yellow. The other thing I was wondering about is should I only use the color for the border or should I also use that same color as some of the squares? Decisions, decisions. Any suggestions?
