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"
Another project down, three more to go! I’m trying very much not to lose steam on these, because if I know anything about myself at all, it’s that I will let a project gather dust for years if I set it aside for too long.

This is [...]continue reading "Project :: Granny Square : Mini Blanket"
So, I’ve got all these squares that my grandmother made, and I’m turning them into finished objects for several of us… you can get the back story here. I sorted and counted them all on Friday: 123 squares, the vast majority of which had five rounds and three colors. There is also a respectable number [...]continue reading "Project :: Granny Square : Coffee Table Mat"
My aunt and my mother have been going through my grandmother’s things in the last few months, and now and then they pass along something that might interest me. Last time I visited home, I was the lucky recipient of all this. There are benefits to being the only remaining knitter in the family! The [...]continue reading "Granny’s Squares"
