I just love granny squares! I remember seeing them as a young girl and thinking they were so pretty. I never thought I would be able to make them myself. Actually they're really easy! I'm in the process of making an afgan with all my squares. I also decided to try my hand at a mug cozy-I've seen so many lately. I made this one with my granny square pattern and an added border with button hole opening. I ended up making several of these for all of my friends with fall birthdays.
