Good mooooorniiiiiiiiiing 🙂

How are you?

Feels great to be with you today!

Wanna jump with me in the land of colors to brighten up your monday? Yallaaaa! Let’s make it! Let’s jump in some granny loveliness…

Yes! It is done and I’m crazy in love with it 🙂

My Giant is 48 rounds + the border… It measures 135x135cm…

The yarn is “Nako Vizon” a 100% acrylic yarn crocheted with a 4.5mm hook…

I enjoyed sooo much crocheting this blanket …

Specially the yellow border! (OOH how I love making borders 🙂 )

I used this border as it reminds me of the granny’s small squares… You can find its graphic pattern here! It is very simple to make and it looks great with a granny square 😉

No more words just more pics… 😉

Hope you enjoyed 😀

Before I go today I want you to welcome some new participants to the Challenge (Yes it is still going on 😉 )

Welcome ladies to our fun crochet a-long!!

Today I want you to applause our friend AntaraCeletna who has already crocheted 62 rounds and maybe more… 62 rounds !! woooow ! We are sooo proud of you 🙂 and her blanket is lovely with beautiful colors 🙂 Do not miss it: it is here 🙂 You did an amazing  job so far AntaraCeletna !! BRAVO!

There is a lot of wonderful blankets on flickr here and on Ravelry here….Go take a peek, it really worth a visit 🙂

Mine has 38 rounds so far and it is very big already…I think it is because the yarn I’m using is a little chunky…

The days are getting hotter and hotter here (36 Celsius) and I have some difficulties putting it on my lap while crocheting 🙂

But I’m enjoying every single stitch …and that what counts 😀

This is my favorite pic so far:

mmmh deliciosa 😀

I’m a granny-obsessed-lover!

and as much as I enjoy crocheting I love looking at everyone’s GIANT and love how the other blankets are slowly getting bigger and bigger …

You are making wonderful pieces of ART ladies! Keep on the beautiful job 😉

Before leaving you today I want you to take a look there 🙂 (miammm that is really delicious 🙂 ) (Thank you Linda for this very cute link !)

Have a wonderful sunshiny week!
