Granny Square update

August 7, 2008

Remember these?  Well, I crocheted a lot of them and then I stopped.  I couldn’t find my size H crochet hook.  Apparantly I only own one of these.   I looked and looked and then gave up.  So I had put this project aside and did other things.  Then, a few days ago I saw the hook.  It was sticking out of the top of one of my yarn bins (I have canvas bins with yarn in them tucked into cubbies.)  I was baffled that I had “left” it there, but happy I found it and then laughed at myself because sometimes I am spacey and leave things in odd places.

Fast forward to the other night when I told my husband the story so that he could also get a chuckle (or maybe get concerned) that I space out and forget where I put things.  He chuckled alright.  Apparantly, he had moved the couch to look for his stereo remote (kids hide it) and my crochet hook fell out of it.  So he stuck it in one of my bins.  Little did he know I had been searching for that.  In fact, I had it on my secret “must buy” list the next time we had money to spend.

So I have been crocheting away and have crocheted through most my stashed SWS (which was a lot.)  I still have some natural violet colorway I am going to use.  They take up most of the diningroom table.

After I have the number of squares I want then I am going to go and buy some SWS in Snow and will crochet a border around each square in the snow colorway, before I lace them all together.

Oh, and this isn’t the layout I am going to use to put them together.  I just through them up on the table.  On the bottom right corner there is one square that is the Natuarl Earth colorway.  I have more of this colorway.  Should I incorporate some of these into the afghan or do you think it is too odd to fit in?  I probably have enough of the natural earth to crochet 10 squares.

Granny Squares

Tomorrow is Madeleine’s first day of preschool.  I am so excited for her.  Tony is going to go and hang out with her the whole time.  I get to do a lot with the kids, so I thought it would be good he could share this with her.



  1. Wendy, these squares are really pretty. I had an afghan made of granny squares (although I didn’t know they were called that) when I was a little girl. I must have loved it to pieces!

  2. The squares are lovely and the finished product will be great!
    Sounds like Madeleine and dad are going to have a wonderful day!

  3. I love all the colors you are using! I like the natural and it goes well with the chocolate mocha squares I think I see in there.

  4. Wendy, your blocks look like cookies! I love the color palette you chose!
