At my Church we have a "Guardian Angel" Program. The adults sign up to be a "Guardian Angel" to a child in the Church, the "Angel". The purpose is mainly to pray for your Angel throughout the school year and to give them secret gifts upon occasion. It is kinda like a Secret Sister but with adults and children.
This year my Angel is Aliviah, the sweetest little girl. (shh... don't tell her I'm her Guardian Angel)
I decided that I wanted to crochet Aliviah an afghan for Christmas. So I did :)
I found the sweetest yarn to use for such a sweet little girl. Red Heart Candy Fair Isle, a variegated yarn.
I went with my go-to granny squares and bordered with White.
I crocheted a scalloped edge to give it a little bit more girly finish.
I packaged the afghan up and made sure that she received it. Each stitch was crocheted with love, thoughts and prayers.
