GRANNY-A-DAY FOR JULY


Both Granny-A-Day crochetalongs for April, May & June have been quite successful!

May:

April:

Who wants to granny in JULY? So if you missed the APRIL or MAY or JUNE one or you have a big project to continue join us in JULY! We will begin JULY 1st!

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 etc. I have been 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 the finished product! 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 in this thread.)

This one has a ton of different squares (crochet & knit) & some ways to connect them all:

I think I am game.  I am new but I can do most the blankets so with a little tut help I should be able to get some granny squares done.

I think I will join up for July. I have a ton of yarn but most colors are only single or double skeins, perfect for a granny square something. It may even give me a warm nostalgic feeling, my Mom taught me to crochet with granny squares. For years I only made lapghans that were really just giant grannies Smiley

I'd like to join in again! I really enjoyed doing the May granny-a-long. Would like to try hexagons this time round.
