SEPTEMBER GRANNY-A-DAY

This is basically a motivation crochetalong. If you want to work on a granny square, motif, one huge granny square blanket, this is a great way to set aside time everyday to get some serious work completed in an attainable amount of time.

People have come up with some really neat uses for grannys too! Different bags and blankets, shopping sack holder, slippers, scarves, a nifty pullover etc. I have made 7" grannys and after a month I have 30 squares that make a perfect size throw blanket.

If you are intrested and would like to join we would love to see your work! Post pics of progress and then at the end of the month post a pic of al that you accomplished! It would be great if everyone could post progress weekly (but not required). At the end of the month we can piece together our work and show off our afghans and Inga bags and whatever else you can come up with to make with nifty grannies! (Must post a completed project or progress pic in this thread.)

You can find many of the other threads in the crochet-a-long section to see how we have done it before!

This is a granny square swap!!! If you don't know how to make a granny square you cand find some basic crochet instructions here.

Swappers will be crocheting thirty 7 inch granny squares and will be partnered with 5 people and sending them each 6 squares.

All motifs MUST be made in 4-ply worsted weight acrylic yarn, or if you're in the UK the yarn equivalent will be 10-ply aran.  Please be sure to check your gauge to make sure your motifs are the correct size.  We wouldn't want to receive some motifs that are 6 1/2" and some that are 7 1/2". Your motifs should measure as close to a 7" square as possible. Size is important!!!

Weaving in the tails: The directions call for a 6" tail to be left at the end. Depending on their joining method, some folks might prefer to have that outside end woven in. There is a question on the questionnaire for you to express a preference. All starting tails must be woven in!

Positive feedback on this swap will be left once your partners have all received, and once you have posted pics of what you have received. You must remember to PM the organizer when you SEND and RECEIVE (a post in the thread is not sufficient)! Please make a note in the subject of the PM with a SEND or RECIEVE. Poor communication and failure to post pics of what you received will be noted in your feedback if you do not. Thanks!

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Granny Square Swap on: March 05, 2011 04:59:50 PM


There has been a granny-a-day crochet along going on on the crochet along board. I began this granny fun in
April of 2010. To celebrate a full year of granny-a-days I wanted to organize a granny square swap for April 2011! I am still trying to figure out how to do it.

I was first thinking about we each do a certain number of squares of the same size and in a acrylic yarn. Then send all the squares to me and then I can send one of each out to all the partcipants. If we do it that way we'd have to add a shipping fee too. Maybe you could send a paid for label addressed to yourself for the return shipping. Hmm...
Then you would piece together your afghan and share pictures.

I think the result we be very cool.

Please share your ideas!

This swap swap might be useful on how to organize it.

APRIL GRANNY-A-DAY
CELEBRATING A YEAR OF GRANNIES!
(not a year long craft along! Just Marking the one year anniversary of granny-a-day!)


I thought these flower granny pillows made for inspiring spring lovliness. This granny-a-day crochet along has been going on for officially one year! I am working on an idea for us to celebrate this! Maybe a granny square swap of sorts to go with this crochet along. I am open to ideas!

Here is the usual info:
This is basically a motivation crochetalong. If you want to work on a granny square, motif, one huge granny square blanket, this is a great way to set aside time everyday to get some serious work completed in an attainable amount of time.

People have come up with some really neat uses for grannys too! Different bags and blankets, shopping sack holder, slippers, scarves, a nifty pullover etc. I have made 7" grannys and after a month I have 30 squares that make a perfect size throw blanket.

If you are intrested and would like to join we would love to see your work! Post pics of progress and then at the end of the month post a pic of al that you accomplished! It would be great if everyone could post progress weekly (but not required). At the end of the month we can piece together our work and show off our afghans and Inga bags and whatever else you can come up with to make with nifty grannies! (Must post a completed project or progress pic in this thread.)

You can find many of the other threads in the crochet-a-long section to see how we have done it before!
