Or maybe I should say "granny's granny squares". Confused? Let me explain.
Although there was a large number of squares, my grandmother hadn't sewn them together, there was still a lot of unused yarn and we had no idea what she intended to do with it. My mother took everything home and decided to make a throw, since it seemed the most obvious solution. Along the years I'm sure she made some additional squares, but even though she's an awesome knitter, she really doesn't like to crochet and I'm pretty sure she forgot all about it.
Since during the winter at our house we use lots of throws (we have them in our living room, our home office, the guest bedroom, our beds, etc) I decided it was time to finally put it all together and actually use it. However, as usual, it was easier said than done and the poor bag sat in a corner, again, untouched, for quite some time.
In my current quest to declutter the house, I finally got round to crochet the final squares to have a rectangle of appropriate size and finished sewing them together. I still have to wash it, as it has been in storage for too long, but at least now it is out of the unfinished objects pile.
On a side note, my kids have already started to argue which of them will be using it first...
