You know that I've always said, Granny Squares are the building blocks to fashion. Well, granny squares and all other types of squares can also be the building blocks to love. I'm so proud of my friends of the West Hollywood Stitch 'n Bitch in addition to members of the Santa Monica Fairview Knitters for contributing squares for two beautiful comfortghans for Frank and Oliver.
The other day, angelic messengers Carla and Natalie gifted Frank and Oliver with the completed afghans. You can read about it on everyone's blogs.
For Frank's summer vacation, he battled cancer. It was a grueling way to spend vacation, but Frank is now cancer free! Congratulations to Frank, his family and friends for continuing to give him support throughout this ordeal.
Natalie came up with the idea of making the afghan. We quietly asked members of the WeHo SnB to contribute squares. The response was amazing! We had so many squares that we even had enough for a mini-ghan for Frank's little boy, Oliver. Once we had collected the squares, I began to edge them. The core group of my Krewe, the Knit Grrrrlz came over one Sunday and we commenced to crocheting the squares together. Brit also showed up and entertained us and gave us moral support. Thanks so much to everyone that helped with the blankets. Click on the various photos below for captions.
