FEBRUARY 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!

I really want to start another scrap granny this month! I was thinking Gray to bring it all together..Hmmm. Last month I finished a scrappy wave-ghan for my son, and a couple of baby things. Is it just me or is everyone having a baby?! Will post pics as soon as I can get my stuff together. This should be fun!

I'm in again, or at least I'll try! Oh, and I finally got a couple pictures posted of the monster granny blanket I'm making for my dad, at the very tail end of January's thread. It's about a foot from being finished...as in, a foot from being king sized! Here's hoping I can get that thing DONE by the end of this month! Cheesy

I started making chain mail jewelry in June 2011, and started my own company, Incendia Designs, in August 2011. I also crochet, act, sew (a little) and am enjoying being a newlywed!

No babies for me, yet, but hopefully soon! And thanks, I designed the icon myself, thinking about printing some cards and labels. I'm going to try very hard to join in this time around. I had a baby shower last night and spent the last 3 days making tiny, cute things, lol. Right now I just need a granny blanket to make my couch all cozy! I was thinking about using one of these:

Solid Square, Blushing Grannies, Puffed Rings

What do you guys think? I'm leaning towards the Solid Square, which is in this book.

I'm gonna have to log-in to Ravelry to check out the solid granny pattern...the other two are nice, too.  I'm going to get started on an Esther square in purples, white and grey.  I've not tried one yet.
I did just get my Inga bag done, lining, handles and everything...will post pic later today!

Here it is...I never get tired of the Inga bag! (my 4th)





I made the handles from dbl strand yarn knit into I-cord.  Also upcycled a skirt for the lining.  =]

I am going to have to get in on this. I am kinda lazy and could use the motivation...and even if I don't do one a day, the guilt will make me at least get on it!! :p I wanted to make some Xmas presents and I really think to make it happen, I have to start early so I don't feel too overwhelmed come fall.
