I love this pattern! I have a granny addiction and this one has got to be my absolute favorite! The pattern is from samijofitz at crochetville. It's called The granny star afghan and here's the one I made for my niece Isa.
I used Red Heart Designer Sport in Pistachio and girly pink and Caron one pound in white with a big ol' K hook!
in other news...I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself Ms. Diva! and trust me my hand aches too! My index finger knuckle feels 2 sizes too big...or is that the Grinch? I'm looking forward to the next meet and I'm very much intrigued by that double-ended crochet hook!?
