Does anybody here remember Project::Granny Square? I don’t blame you, if you don’t. I took an unintentionally long hiatus from the project when I got sidetracked by the shiny and the new (also known as sweater knitting and building of my own from-scratch granny square blankets, among other things). Here it is in a nutshell: I […]continue reading "Project :: Granny Square : Pillow Set"
I finished weeks 9 and 11 (there was no 10) for the Granny Square Sampler. I really, really love these week 9 dimensional flowers. I will admit that I only half-read the instructions while catching up on an old White Collar episode, and so I did them kind of wrong.

I’ve been wanting to give you a progress report on Eamonn’s blanket for a few weeks now. I would take a picture of the blanket, but then I wouldn’t have time to blog, and by the time I sat down to do it, I’d have more progress to show. So I’d wait until I had […]continue reading "Eamonn’s blanket and crochet hooks"
I think my 365 Project is doing a better job of representing how I spend my days this year than it has in previous years. Maybe it’s because I’m not focusing on a particular theme this time around, and just shooting what I’m doing. I realized this when I sat down to process several day’s […]continue reading "Day to day"
I am happy to report that the Afghan Cane tutorial is complete! It took dozens of photos, and fourteen PDF pages, but it’s finally done and ready for you in the download shop. The afghan is an intermediate level cane. It takes advantage of several partial blends and uses them in a non-traditional way, allowing […]continue reading "The Afghan Cane"
It got me. The disease known as Granny Square Brain has got me, and it won’t let go. This is one of those disorders that keeps you awake at night, thinking about color schemes. If you want to get any sleep at all, the only option is to just give in to the fever for […]continue reading "Granny Square Brain"
