My favorite blanket was a blue granny square afghan my mom made when she was in high school because even though it was fairly small, it was really heavy. And the best thing about it was that it was actually made out of granny hexagons!
So when, in my search for great granny square patterns, I came across this . . .
. . . I was pretty excited! It brought back a bunch of fabulous memories and was just the comfort I needed on such a rainy, dogless day.
I think I'm gonna start a hex right now!
