Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I'm a single mum with a beautiful daughter and I started crocheting 4 years ago when I quit smoking, I'm a huge fan of the granny square and mostly spend my free time making blankets as well as occasionally trying to expand my crafty skills :-)

126 squares made!!!!!

Yay!!  The last of the squares are done and they're all sitting in a pile waiting to be played with :-)



They're a blanket-they just don't know it yet!

Back when I first started making granny squares (nearly 3 years ago!) and before I started making the epic TARDIS blanket, I was making loads of granny squares in different colour combinations just for fun and practise.  Most of them have ended up pressed into service as blankets for Myf's castle or spare coasters!  However, there was one that I found recently that I thought would be perfect for this project.


The centre green is a little blue for the palette I was working with plus it's a round short but I really wanted to include a square from my early days (I'm sentimental).  I ripped the outer brown round, added another green and a dark brown and voila!  A new-old square :-)


These are the last eight granny squares to show you...



For the last special square motifs, I've found some lovely patterns to test myself on and had fun improvising the rest :-)
















So much pretty!  I'm itching to start laying them out and getting the pattern I want but I want to finish up a couple of other projects first.  I've done the poncho-which I'll try to photograph tomorrow-and I'm working on a couple of rune pendants and a pair of fingerless gloves.  But then, it's blanket time!

Total number of squares to make-126 (63/63)
Brown edged granny squares-63 DONE!
Special Square Motifs-63 DONE!
