Project :: Granny Square : Pillow Set

28 pgs 07

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 […]

Two more weeks down

28 gss 01

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 realized my mistake after […]

A yarny world

241/365 August 28

A basket of crochet and a frozen coffee drink in the evening. Granny square sweaters from 1975 in a library find. More vintage granny squares from the same book. A basket of crochet and hot coffee the next morning. Is there any doubt where my head is at lately? I would have thought by now […]

The finished granny square afghan

I finished it. And a nine-year-old somebody was very happy. Did you see the post where I showed you how to make granny squares and put them together? Well, sometime in the next few days, I will show you how to make a border. Then you can make your own nine-year-old son (or your niece, […]

Eamonn’s blanket and crochet hooks

six rows done

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 […]

Day to day

72/365 March 12

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 […]

The Afghan Cane

The Afghan Cane

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 […]

Granny Square Brain

63/365 March 3

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 […]
