I’ve got a bit of yarn left over from other projects lying about. I tend to find it in my knitting bags and wool storage boxes. The more I look, the more I find! I’m pretty much a yarnaholic. Not such a bad thing really.
I decided to use my scrap yarn to make granny squares and other motifs. I’ve been looking around for different crochet motifs to make. I like making the little squares because they are quick to make as well as being interesting!
But what to do with all these squares?
A blanket, or course! Georgia has claimed this one, so all our children should receive a handmade blanket this Christmas!
Isn’t it a riot? I love all the colours. I love combining colours that I wouldn’t usually combine or even use. I’m also really enjoying working different motifs. I love working out new patterns and would love to design my own soon. Sometimes I have to work out how to make a circle or flower into a square shape. That’s when I get my real crochet geek on and work out patterns.
We’ve all been a bit sick for the last couple of weeks. All I want to do is sit around with my tea and crochet in the sunshine. Of course, it’s only a dream really, as our life is pretty busy, but I enjoy my evening crochet as we listen to ‘The Martian’ on Audible.
And the flowers I am working on brighten up the dullest of days!
Patterns: traditional granny square and any other similar size (~13cm) square motifs I can find
Joining techniques: join as you go, single crochet, combination join, invisible join, double crochet combination join and more.
Finished size: still unsure, currently I have 25 squares.
