Does anyone here know what granny squares are? When I used the term at work, I got a lot of puzzled glances. LOL

Anyway, my second grandson, Cash Robert, arrived this morning at 1:48. He weighs 7 lbs, 1 oz and is 19.5" long.

DSD called last night just before I went to bed to tell us her water broke. She was 4 days overdue so we had all been waiting anxiously for something to happen. She waited at home until things were progressing. Checked into the hospital at 12:20 and less than an hour and a half later, he was here!

Now I'm super excited to book our trip to see them in October!

Granny squares, as I know them, are small knitted/crocheted squares that can be sewn together to make a larger project like a blanket or pillow. Many of my friends who knit started out with these because they are easy and adaptable to many things.

I'm sure we'll see pictures. The wonders of digital cameras and Facebook! LOL

I had never heard that term...but when you described them, I pictured a doily (sp?)...those white things my grandmother used to put underneath lamps and things to protect her tables.

Congrats on being a grandmother!!

They look somewhat similar to a doily but are usually square instead of round because then they fit together better into a larger design.

Wasn't quite sure what a granny sq is, but thought it had to do something with quilting. Congratulations, and what a wonderful name they chose.
