Granny Circle Squares

As many of these granny circle (or squares) as I have crocheted and I’ve never stuck to such a strict color palette. Fun change!

tiny thread and hook


As I challenged myself a few posts ago, these latest little evening hand-busy crocheted rocks were done using a smaller hook, US9/1.25mm, and smaller thread, size 20. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I actually like using these small components even better.

I nearly finished blocking all my granny squares for the sampler. Ready to start joining tomorrow? You may be as relieved as I am to know that it’s not as hard as I thought it would be!

And lastly, here’s what’s playing in my studio today. I just love Camera Obscura. Enjoy!

Granny Square Sampler Project- Week 13


Granny Square wk 13

This week’s granny square is brought to us by Beth (who is @cookiecat57 on Instagram- remember you can tag your photos on instagram with #grannysquaresampler so we can all see each other’s). I like this one because its quite different from the ones we’ve done over the past few weeks, retro, unusual, and just plain interesting. So let’s do it! It is called “The Whirlygig” and needs no introduction other than Beth’s photo, which she also kindly sent me.READ MORE

Granny Square Sampler Project- Week 9

How is everyone doing on the granny square sampler? Is everyone up to date on their squares? I know some have been crocheting on car trips and I am so jealous, I get car sick when I try. All that wasted passenger seat time!

This week I have a treat to share with you for our assignment today. I asked Erin if she would be willing to jump in and share a granny square for the sampler, and she graciously agreed. This week’s square is a sweet dimensional flower she chose for us.READ MORE
