Stitches Used: Knitting; knit, purl, slipped stitches. Crochet; chains, slip stitch, double crochet, single crochet. For my afghan I chose these rules, you are welcome to adjust them to your desires, but be aware that adjustments may require different yarn amounts. I worked each 5 round Granny Square uses 3 colors, but the number of rounds of each color varied. My knitted log cabin portions were worked in a different color from all colors in the granny square portion. I also worked 14 squares completely as granny squares. Each one was 9 rounds to be the same size as the granny log cabin blocks. These full granny blocks had no restrictions as to color or number of rows of each color.

I started sewing when I was a toddler on one of those drilled out boards where you use a shoelace and sew the outline of a fish or a duck. Once I could wield scissors I started sewing dresses for my dolls. I added crochet when I was 8, cross stitching when I was 10, beading at 11, and knitting at 16. And I started binding books in college.
