Your grannies look so nice!


Ha! I get what you mean, because I seem to learn in a very similar way--I keep putting things down and then picking them up again from time to time until they "click"!


Oooo, very nice! Those colors are rockin' my world. Keep on truckin'!


congrats! they look great.

you could always leave the ends out and turn them into a mobile....

...and forgive me if that is the most insane suggestion you've ever heard. i've got mobiles on the brain lately.


I think they look fab-U-lous! Hooray for you!!!

ahh. Well done!


I LOVE them. You are super good. Just keep going!


My friend Ellen ("granny squares are the building blocks of fashion") taught me how to make granny squares. She is a whiz with a crochet hook. I love the color combination. Ellen recommends crocheting all the ends in as you go. It really does make a difference when finishing. All those ends can be daunting.


Granny squares rock! I swooned over bunches of them this morning when I found afghans at the antique shop.

"Granny Squares are the building blocks to fashion." (I said that).

Your granny squares look great! Keep making them!


They are gorgeous! When you get a lot of them done, do you fasten them together into a blanket? I think I've seen blankets like that.


Those look pretty perfect to me! I've been saying I'm going to learn how to do granny squares for over a year now, and I still haven't started... K x


Yeah! See - you ARE sew crafty!

These are beautiful!! I swear that I thought this was a photo you pulled from somewhere else to show how beautiful, finished granny squares should look. I'm very impressed!! I also really like the photo, with the squares on an angle, with that nice shadow. Lovely all around.

  • Hi, I'm Alexis, wife of CMR, and mother of Beatrix, Willa, and India. Right now I'm not so crafty, but through my explorations of crafting, crocheting, sewing, cooking, gardening, printing, writing, photographing, and lots of other "ings," I hope to find my way to a craft that I love. I'm so glad that you dropped by. I hope you find something you like, and I hope you leave me a comment to let me know that you were here.
