If you follow me on instagram (buttonwoodcottage) you already know I joined a granny square blanket crochet along – and I’m loving it!
I think I’ve been so focused on pushing my technical skills this year that I forgot to pick up easy projects for a break. I love this project. I finished almost all of week two while chatting with the girls on the side porch and having a glass of wine. Zero concentration necessary. AND I am reveling in the colors. Just look at these colors!
I’m thinking about adding custom granny square afghans to the shop. I’m still marinating on how this would work. Something along the lines of a set price per square with the buyer choosing the number of squares, the colors, and the basic arrangement. Then I build you a custom blanket. Awesome right? Let me know in the comments section if you’re interested (not buying, just if the idea sounds fun to you).
I really love this project! (Can you tell?) I started on the 15th and have already finished the first four weeks of assignments. And here I was afraid I’d never catch up.
Next I’m tackling week five – circular granny squares. Hmmm, I’m sensing a contradiction here. I’ll let you know how those turn out and if I love, hate, or love/hate them. I can really see it going any direction.
PS. If you want to join the crochet along the instructions are here (catching up is totally doable, and completely unnecessary if you want to just go at your own pace).
PPS. Or if you just want to see awesome photos of what others are doing check out this Flickr group or #grannysquaresampler on instagram.
