This is the afgan that I made for Casey's 8th birthday. It was really easy to make and is a good way to use up yarn scraps. First I knitted a small rectangle and then kept single crocheting around the rectangle. When I got to a corner, I did 3 single crochet stitches to keep the corners laying flat. My brother-in-law asked how long it took to make. I told him it went pretty fast, and probably took about a week of evenings watching tv. I hope Casey enjoys it! Two things I like about knitting and crocheting is that it is relaxing, and I can think about (and pray for) the person I am making the gift for as I am doing it.
