It's the boys' blanket, that started out as a hexagon blanket and ended up a granny stripe... Mom fell in love with it and decided to pick up crochet again so she "hijacked" my WIP and started working on it. Like me, it helps her keep calm in times of hardship and she's been having a lot of that with my stepfather's illness.
So... with a little coaching here and there, she's been working steadily and here it is again--it's coming along beautifully!
This is how it was...
But then it started to get too big to carry around and take to the hospital, so I had an idea... Why not add some granny squares...?
And here's the result, I think it is looking quite nice, don't you?
She can now take make squares and more squares as she goes to the hospital with her husband and waits for hours until he's ready to go back home--and come home to join them :)
She will probably make at least another round of squares for the blanket to reach a reasonable size.
And from the look of it, I think pretty soon I'll have to set up another WIP for Mom to work on :) Great job, Mom!
