A Happy Accident
Another block for the scrapghan! I made it from the pattern Triple Delight by Judy Lewis, found in Women's Day Prizewinning Granny Squares... a book I didn't mean to get!Here's what happened...
I found a picture of an amazing afghan in a google image search. It led me to this blog and post, where I HAD to find where the pattern came from.
Anyways, in my excitement and obsession to have this pattern in my possession as soon as possible, I mistakenly read where the pattern was from and bought this book:
After waiting about a week and a half for it to arrive, I excitedly started flipping through the book. You can not imagine how mad I was to go through the entire thing and not find the pattern I wanted!! Tossing this book aside, I reread the original blog post, did more research and finally found the right magazine at a reasonable price, and only had to wait about four days for it to arrive!
So, after finally receiving the coolest pattern ever, I decided to take another look at the first book I had cast away in frustration. It wasn't fair of me to treat it with such disregard, so I made one of the blocks as an apologetic gesture.
This is such a neat square! Until the fifth row I wasn't even sure I was following the pattern right, but then all of a sudden like magic it came together. I love the texture from the corner loops.
In direct contrast with my first sentiments about this book, I can now say that buying it was certainly a happy little accident.
