Back to granny squares

granny squares

Last week I was poorly with a sinus infection (one illness after another and everyone has had this!) so I was trying to get well and what better way to cheer myself up with good old granny squares. I know I harp on about it frequently but I do love granny squares. They are so satisfying to make and to look at a whole pile of them, with their ends sewn in are little works of art. So whilst sitting under my granny stripe blanket I made a few of them. I've had to stop to finish the baby blanket I was working on and then I got a commission to make a little girls blanket, so I've been colour planning, which I never do and now I'm stuck on how to start. I'm torn between a heart granny or flower. To be honest I tried the heart and couldn't do it, maybe I should try again.

I did however get round to making some yarn pegs over the weekend, totally in love with them and looking forward to making the blues, greens, browns and creams from my stash. You can find the helpful tips on the Attic24 blog.

I love granny squares, which is all I can crochet, I must settle down one day and follow a pattern.
