Scrap Granny Afghan...Part 1

When a project gets frogged there is a small death associated with it. Somewhat sad, but invigorating at the same time. While a project may get frogged for any number of reasons; the pattern wasn't working out, yarn issues, or just plain frustration with the project itself it eventually leads to a rebirth in another project. So it is with this project. Originally you can see it here andhere as the "Scrap Granny Square". Becoming dissatisfied with the innate "square-ness" of the project that would never quite be undone without some modification I opted to make smaller squares that could as a whole be made into a rectangular or other shape.

Thus far it's a 4x4 of 4 round grannies (each granny is 5.5") leaving it to be 22" square. It's likely to become a full sized afghan, but what precise size I am unsure about. I will be maintaining a square shape trying out different typical afghan sizes starting with a receiving blanket and on up.
