Saturday Shopping List


Tomorrow at Brown Owls I'm learning to crochet a granny square. I have no idea what I'll do with the square when (if) it's finished. Will I keep grannying my way to an afghan? Or will I give up after one? All I know is I'm loving these innovative takes on this popular style of crochet.

1. Spiffy Granny Tops for Blythe from Dolls With Attitude
2. Granny Mitts Crochet Pattern PDF from ChezPlum
3. Teal and Off White Hand Crocheted Granny Square Afghan from Winds of Change
4. Crocheted Earrings Granny Square (free shipping) from Crocheted Little Things

Pop over to Charlotte's for more lists.

And if you like making granny squares or you want to learn why not take part in Pip's A Granny A Day.

Thanks for showing those, they're great finds. I missed the crocheting fun down here, but I'm hoping to learn at some point.

I guess that's the beauty of crochet isn't it? It's so adaptable. Knitting is also adaptable but I find crochet more interesting to do and easier to handle. Making mistakes in knitting can get quite messy!!

One thing you will know tomorrow is that you won't turn back. Once you start you don't know where you'll end up!

PS - love the Blythe top. Might make one for my daughters doll.

Lucky lady - it's on my list of 'to learns'.

I too wonder what happens to all the extra granny squares of the world.

Oh I just love a good granny! I'm making all white ones at the moment, can't wait to start on some cute coloured ones! Hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Those are all so great, especially the granny mitts! I may have to take up crocheting.

Great inspirations for tomorrow. I don't know what I'm going to do with my square/s either but really looking forward to learning anyway.

See you (and meet you!) tomorrow.
