Granny Gone Wild Crochet Along

My friend LuAnn has posted about a new crochet along. I love the name they have chosen. Granny Gone Wild. Isn't that great! See my link on the side bar. And perfect timing for me!

I finished the striped throw I had been working on and am ready for a new granny project. A few days ago, I was watching Brothers and Sisters on Netflix--season 5, episode 4, 5 or 6-I don't remember. Anyhow right in the beginning they showed this afghan. I backed it up, paused it and ran for the camera. I have an app on my phone for my shopping lists and I hurried and put in the colors for this new project. I'll have to do some research on Ravelry to figure how much yarn I need to buy. The colors are a bit off in the photo, they are an emerald green, mint green and royal blue. Shouldn't be much trouble finding the perfect colors.

I am ready to go shopping! But I won't, not today. Did I not say right here that I was done canning! I was a bit wrong. Today I have my crockpot full of apples for apple butter. I am getting ready to make a couple pies and I have jars in the dishwasher for apple pie filling. Yes, I was wrong.

Afternoon update: I went back and read my post and saw that I was expecting the apples but not this: My darling husband just walked in the door with a 5 gallon bucket full of green beans.....good thing there are more jars and lids ready to go! I love that man! The house smells heavenly.....apple butter slow cooking in the crockpot, pies in the oven.

I can see why you wanted to replicate this granny afghan. It is pretty.

Oooh, I love apple butter. I have a recipe where it is baked in a slow oven (rather than a crock pot) for hours. It is so yummy!

Barely 40 degrees here today. Makes me wish I had a batch of Apple Butter in the oven.

Hi Judy I'm so glad you are going to crochet along with us. There are no rules except to just have fun. I would love it if you would post photos in the flickr group so we can see what you are doing.

What wonderful fruits and veggies! The afghan looks similar to one I made MANY years ago... I really enjoyed crocheting then; now I just knit. Can't wait to see what yarns you come up with!
