Granny squares and Coraline; Work in Progress Wednesday

Posted by on May 16, 2012 at 6:14 am.

Last evening I did something for the first time… 

I started crocheting granny squares!

The reason to get moving with grannies has everything to do with the wonderful Pammy at Scotty’s Place.

She posted a picture of a gorgeous floral afghan. And I wanted to learn how to make those squares. What I didn’t know was I’d have so much fun making them.

With a printed tutorial in hand, I didn’t find it hard to make crocheted granny squares. The green and brown were my test squares…

I decided I wanted to try citrus colors and chose the lavender, and lime green. I thought the colors would work well together.

Once I completed the lime, I loved how the colors looked great; but I thought something was missing? And so I added another row with  the mustard yarn. I love the look; it’s so bright and cheerful, that I most likely will turn this into a project.

 Eventually I’ll be making a floral granny square afghan, but will be deviating from this floral granny afghan square a lot. I already sketched out the afghan that I’ll be creating.

I’m still working on my daughter’s amigurumi Coraline. The poor girl still needs a haircut!

I had to put this project on hold while I worked on some last minute Mother’s Day gifts. I should be finished my crocheted Coraline by the end of this week.

What am I reading?

Well, I’ve been reading a lot of granny square tutorials. Who knew there were so many ways to make them? 😉
