Hello there!! Teaming up with some girls on a giant granny crochet group! This was just the thrilling little newness i needed today, thank you Ang! I have done a good bit of motif learning here lately , and was fully confident to tackle the little granny square this time. An hour outside with the kiddos, and lookey ! I did it !! I just love it … i will keep going and going … I am using sz 5 hook and various colours of a Debbie Bliss Chunky Cashmerino i’ve had in my stash for years. It feels so good to finally give it a project !
I’m no stranger to the round repeatedness of crochet. This was originally intended to become a floor RUG. .. . however .. I got about this far ( its 12×12 currently ) and can go no more. Its big, it takes forever to go round now. I have no idea what i’ll do with it. (Any ideas?)
Some more roundness. This was a successful attempt at a floor rug! Still in progress. . . made with Thrifted Bias Tape ( which cost nearly nothing ) and a child’s hacked off TOOTHBRUSH. (Hence the name ‘Toothbrush Rug’). I did a big blog post about how to make these on my old blog , and deleted it . OoOps. If you google, you’ll find heaps of instruction on these rugs. Easy. Fun.
This dear little blanket is what has been receiving FULL ATTENTION for the last two weeks. No other crafting project of any kind. (which i think is why i was so eager for this granny square business today). I have finished the crocheting, now I just have to work on the correct joining method and the silk edging. It’s gonna be novel baby, novel. You can go here to see just how long i’ve been working on this blanket. (so embarassing!)
Wishing you all a wonderful fuzzy filled weekend !
