Last month, I excitedly did a ‘show and tell’ of my first ever crocheted granny square. Well, like with most new crafty activities I try, I'm now well-and-truly addicted!!!
And, as with all my other crafty activities, one of my favourite parts of the process is putting together the colours. How many different combos could I conjure up from 7 colours of yarn, using 4 for each square? Well, I could work in out precisely. But I think it’s adequate to just say LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS! Yippeeeeee!!!
So far, I’ve made 13. Here are some of my favourites:
I still haven’t decided 100% on what I’m going to do with all my grannies. In my head, I'm picturing a big, colourful blanket. But I’m going to need a fair few more if I stick to that plan. I think I’ll just keep on making them until I get bored, and see how far I get.....
By the way, can anyone explain (or point me towards a good video that can explain) what I should do with the ends after I cut them and pull them through? I’m just wrapping them around and around, but I think there must be a neater, ‘proper’ way of doing it. I’d be really grateful for any tips!
Right now, I’m also working on another crochet project. It’s very exciting indeed, as it’s my first try at crocheting something other than grannies! I’m joining in with Sarah’s wonderful crochet-a-long over at Annaboo’s House. If you enjoy crocheting, or if you’re a beginner (like me), and fancy trying something fun, you should definitely join in! By playing along, you can make either a cat, a monkey or a doll. Can you guess which one I’m working on???
Off to grab my hook and do another granny square.....
Hope you're all enjoying lovely, warm days and beautiful, blue skies wherever you are!
