Winter Wonderland II . .Part Deux . . Squares #2

Below you will see the first two squares that I have received in my first swap in Ravelry's Vanna's Choice Fan Club.

Also, I needed to make one more square so I could get send everyone in the group their first square. I owe two people 2 squares because there are not 12 people in the group.) So you will also see a square made up of what I had left before I go on my next Vanna shopping trip.

The firs twas from Squiggles12345 and the second one is from yelorose.

Comment: When I finished this square, it reminded me of a woman with light blue eyes who was wearing navy eye shadow. Thus the name Granny’s Eye.
NOTE: If you need to adapt the number of stitches you skip on Rounds 5, 9 and 10, don’t worry. I always seem to make some kind of mistake when I am doing sc’s, and this has always worked out fine. It is a VERY forgiving pattern.
