For Peepers

11 Feb

Story behind this afghan ~
I’ve been crocheting squares off and on, ‘just for fun’ with no particular project in mind. An abundance of pink overfloweth from the yarn stash, so it was the obvious choice to wrap around a hook for awhile.

A little more than month ago, a long-time friend, I mean since 5th grade kind of girlfriend, told me that her mother had a stroke and was in the hospital and going through some rehab. She was worried and unable to be there, face-to-face, for her Mom. My heart ached because she is my friend and mother/daughter relationships are special. All of the sudden, I had a purpose for all this pinkness! Just needed a couple more squares to make, tweak a couple squares I was never completely happy with, and then stitch it all together. Yes, stitch.it.all.together….not my strong suit. Anyway, it is finished, prayed over, and will be on it’s way in a couple days.

I knew PINK would be the perfect color. Having spent a bazillion hours at the Webb House and in the Webb Pool, I would see The Lady of the Webb House wearing a pink bikini quite often during Pool Season. I think she must have worn pink regularly because that is a color I associate with her. Or maybe it was pink lipstick….probably both. She looooved her big sunglasses, too and that is why this is called Peeper’s Afghan. There may be a little more to that story, but you’ll never hear it here! 😉

And if you would, send up a little prayer for my friend and her Mama.

Details about the individual squares (at least most of them) are below in their own posts and I will post the rest later.
Put this together with VC Poodle Pink and did a border of 2 rounds of granny stitch and 1 round of sc. Crochet Cabana has an awesome tutorial about joining squares with this method. Crochet Cabana – part 1
