#39 Gavin’s Stripes
#71 Star Flower

4/3/09 - done and done. I’ll bring it in to the store on Tues.

  • 3/31/09 - the 12 monthly blocks are done as well as 90% of the filler granny squares. All that is left to do is add the final round on the grannies, joining to the other blocks as I go.

  • 2/22/09 - 7 grannys are done. That’s as far as you get before you need more yarn. I have 6 more in various stages of doneness. All 13 are done through the blue round. Of the 6 left, 2 need everything after blue, 1 needs 1/2 a round of yellow and everything that follows, 1 needs just the purple and green rounds, 1 needs 1/2 a round of purple and green and the last needs 2 green dc clusters and its finished.
