For its own sake

DSCF2329a

I’ve been making big granny squares, just for the sake of crocheting something.  I guess I just can’t go very long without having a granny square project around somewhere.  I have a granny habit.  Must granny.

There’s also been this:

Which is almost done, and which I can’t wait to show you, if only because that will mean it is, for crying out loud, finished.  That thing has been lurking in the project bag since dirt was invented, and the huge yarn cone from which it sprang has been clogging up the stash for a hundred years.  Get done, will you?  Sheesh.

  5. Sometimes stuff just has to be finished doesn't it? I like the colours of the throw. I have finished my dress last night here... Phew! I have the same feelings.

  6. Love granny squares! Yours look very nice. At first I thought this was a granny square dish-cloth or table-rag. What an idea! I think I just might have to try making a pair :)

  17. There's no denying when the granny urge strikes. It's like granny crack. After seeing your squares, I want some too.
    Looks like your latest knitting project has a pretty crochet edging. Can't wait to see!

Surely someone,somewhere is going to declare Grannies a legit addiction, someday!!! I wonder how many of us have little grannies stacked away just because we had to make them!!! No plan, just had to!!!!!!!!

  22. Found your blog this morning. I have to granny too. I find it a great stress reliever. I'm kind of obsessed with crochet and the challenge of a new pattern, but always go back to the granny. It's as natural as breathing. Will add your blog to my reading list.
