Granny Squares!

Yay!  For once I actually stuck with a goal more than a day, haha.  I know I can be pretty flaky sometimes.  I think it is mostly due to my over-enthusiasm to do everything NOW.  Anyway, Granny Squares...



The last two waiting to be "squared" with white.

I brought a tote of leftover acrylic yarn from who knows how long ago to babysitting last week (I think there is still some little yarn balls that I had back when I *learned* to crochet at 7yr.  I definitely recognize them from some of my first creations...)



and I couldn't believe how quickly these little guys whipped up!


I think the "worse" part was switching colors all the time.  So at least I know I'm ready to try a little afghan like the one I posted about earlier.

Below is the pattern I'm currently following for this first project.  Maybe it'll end up in the shop, I'm not sure yet.

And then, if I'm not too bored with the shell pattern (which my dad reminded me is the actual stitch pattern; granny squares are just the square) I'll be taking on this afghan next.


Can't wait!

  1. Does your dad crochet?! Or just versed in the terminology of crochet? :)

    Such a beautiful blanket! Love it with the white instead of the traditional black.

    I LOVE the granny ripple too. Looks fun.

  2. Hi Genevieve,

    My dad does know *how* to crochet, but he hasn't in a long time. I do have a few memories of him crocheting when I was younger & learning the craft. :)
