granny squares

these granny squares have become quite an addiction! i've spent almost every spare minute working on them. i go to bed at night and wake up in the morning with visions of granny squares.

seeing all the time and energy going into my afghan caused me to stop and make a plan to be sure it was all worth the while. after much searching and contemplation, i committed to creating something bigger and better - a quilt very similar to carina's beautiful blanket, to adorn our bed.

currently our bed is covered with a duvet-less down comforter because we find them to be a total pain in the rump. i think spreading a granny square blanket over it will look nice.

i'll need to make 42 squares. i've got 11 done (minus the cream border which i think i'll save 'til the end) and some in the works. if i could just get into a rhythm, i'd have so many more completed. i find myself stopping and redoing my stitches so often. it's quite annoying. so today i take a break.

until tomorrow, little squares...=)


  1. Ahhh...SO cute! These remind me of my mom but I never learned how to make them. Hmmm...I will add these to my ever growing To-Do List! Thanks for the reminder! Can't wait to see your new blanket once it's done :-)

    1. thanks bg! there are a lot of granny square tutorials online.

  2. Man! That's gonna be a whale of a beautiful blanket!

  5. So lovely squares! I used to crochet a lot when I was at school. I haven't crocheted anything for a long time, maybe I should try again..

  6. I heart granny squares! I learned (self-taught thanks to video tutorials) last summer. They're so fun! I need to learn how to switch up designs and colors though. Actually, I need to refresh my skills. :)
