Extreme Retro Granny Afghan
Created By: Mary E Horne
Craft: crochet
Materials: Lion Brand Sayelle 4 ply Orlon Acrylic, June 10, 1982, Autumn Ombre K-Mart Sayelle 4 ply Orlon Acrylic, April 5, 1948, Gold, Rust, and Brown
Pattern Source: lionbrand: Braintree Maze

I acquired a free 30 gal. bag of yarn from a neighbor's client last winter. I have never met the lady, but she was willing to donate the yarn to a fellow "user" rather than throw it away. In pristine condition, the lady had noted the exact date she purchased the yarn on each label. I used the current "Braintree Maze" crochet pattern which requires 4 different colors. Three of the colors I used were K-Mart Sayelle 4 ply dated April 5, 1984. The fourth color was Lion Brand Sayelle 4 ply dated June 10, 1982. Here's to long-lasting quality of the original acrylic yarn formula!!!!!
