grannies

Heart: all

... don't you love 'em? Yep, the human kind are nice too!


A little warning though: They're all unblocked!


Heart: none. Hate: none.

Of course, I mean the good old granny square. What's that? Boring, you say? No way! When I first started crocheting, about 4 years ago, I came across Sarah London's blog and was in awe of the colour, the textures and techniques that she uses. Gone were my initial thoughts of grannies being boring! And after hooking a few grannies myself, they are a favourite. They can be used in so many ways and can send out various mood vibes based on the colours you choose to use. 


Heart: none. Hate: top left.

I hooked up a few recently for Crochet-a-Rainbow and realised how I love certain colour combos and HATE others.


Heart: lower right. Hate: top left.

Heart: all.

I had planned to share them here and then today, I saw that Sarah's having a Granny Square Love Blog Book Tour! Isn't that exciting! I'm looking forward to the tour. She has a book trailer AND a giveaway too!

I love that she says "Begin your day with a blank canvas and ensure to saturate it with colour! Scandalous or safe the colour choice is entirely yours."

Thank you to all of you that commented on:
a) the dress - tutorial coming up in sha Allah!
b) the sourdough bread - it didn't rise as much as the first one (which was white). I probably tried to rush it along. Our loaf was gone in a flash though!
