Granny Square Throw

Earlier in the month saw me doing the yearly "de-clutter"  slash "clean out" of the craft cupboard.  I was truly amazed at how many partly used and odd balls of 8ply yarn I found hanging about in there from long forgotten projects and bargain finds at the op shop.

A sure fire, quick way of using up these odds and ends to make something worthwhile and useful for yourself, or for giving as a gift, is the humble granny square throw.

Three weeks later,  here is a pic of my completed blanket which measures a nice size of 1.4m x 1.4m.  This is a great size for throwing over yourself whilst cuddled up watching the TV or for giving to a friend to do the same.   

As all the leftover yarn together makes the throw a bit too colourful for my decor inside the house - I have decided to keep it on the back seat of the car.  This way it can come in handy whilst travelling or provide some extra comfort when hanging out in one of those budget hotel rooms I seem destined to constantly pick to stay in when we decide to go away for the weekend.

Below is an up-close detail of what a standard, humble "Granny Square" is made up of.  Full instructions for completing a granny from start to finish can be found HERE
