    I just finished a couple of those last week! They are so fun even after making hundreds over the years as no two every turn out the same.

    Lovely squares – I’ve just started making some sunflower squares with lots of puff stitches – red heart pattern -can’t wait to see it coming together.

    You always have such wonderful color combinations! Granny squares are one of the first patterns I ever crocheted and is still by far the most lovely. I slip stitch the last row into the another square as I find it leaves a neater finish. Sewing in the ends is not my favourite task but it gets done. I’m made many, many of these over the years…….my yarn stash seems to be the same size – wonder how that happens?? 🙂

      I don’t know how that happens either… these wools are all from other projects, and I’m hoping that there will be enough to complete it (and if not Ill have to go and buy more – so I guess I DO know how the stash never gets any smaller!!!). Sewing in ends = my least favourite part too! x

    Those colors are so beautiful!! I would never have thought to put those colors together. Very unique. What is the dimension of the finished square? Love it!!!!!



    • Janette says:

      Thanks Rose, the squares are very nearly 15cm across – Ive used a 4mm hook and dk/worsted yarn. The wools are all leftovers from other projects… that’s the best kind of new project I think! x

    I’ve just started to crochet a single bed size chevron blanket for my 13yr old. I’m hoping to have it completed before he turns 18 😀 It’s black and white with a streak of red

    Looking forward to seeing what you turn your lovely squares into. I’m also working on a stash buster project. A hexagon blanket. It is multi coloured with no pattern to the arrangement of colours. I’m usually very colour coordinated but I’m loving the randomness of this project. Have a lovely day x

    I love your colours!
    I’m working on four blankets at the moment – all granny squares. Every few days I have to ignore them and starting doing something with a different stitch, or just a different shape. I don’t get bored with them, I just need variety 😀

    When I read your post last night, I wanted to immediately pick my crochet hook and make a granny square. The yarn you are using is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. – Sharon

    I love the colours you have chosen for your squares. Last weekend I picked up my crochet hook that had been dormant for about six years. II will take some pictures and share what I am working on with you. Of course, they are granny squares 🙂

    I love the colors you are using. I’m working on some owl key chains for a Craft Fair with my sister. I’ve been working on a sweater, too. It has little grannys down the front and back. I seem to be stuck on the sleeves.

    They are beautiful! I really like the colors you’ve picked and the way they go from light to dark. This week, I have finished two big projects – a quilt and a sweater. Now I need to get to work on y April socks, because there isn’t much of April left. HA!

    Those colours are gorgeous! I love Granny Squares, too! I haven’t made any for a while, but I’m thinking about doing a bunch and then seeing what they turn into . . . ~ Linne
