I was going through pictures tonight and came across this picture of the first blanket I made when I was pregnant with my first child. That was more than 24 years ago!! I had learned to make the Granny Square as a teenager and had the pattern memorized. So in my spare time I chose this simple pattern that had been ingrained in my memory for many years.
Last summer as we were packing up the house and putting everything into storage I came across the box that contained this first "hole blanket" as CL affectionately called it. He also has a matching pillow that you may (or may not) be able to see in the box the blanket is draped over.
Below is a pattern for the Basic Granny Square so you can learn to make your own. And check out my blog entry here as I went through my "stash busting" project, using up spare yarn and making different afghans using the Granny Square.
