Ohhh, baby blankies are much funner to do...=]  I'm going to ditch the squares I was thinking on doing and get to the granny blanket squares!!  =]

Here is the OnE I completed:

And here is the botched one, making a coaster for the matching colored placemat beside the loveseat!!  Coffee and stitching spot in the morning...=]


I'm going to do some looking through my patterns and start a granny first thing in the morning!!

Well, it's sort of a granny...and there are ten squares to make for the top!  I can crochet the dress part while getting on with more grannies for a new blanket in March:

My blanket so far.  It's just a giant granny square, right now it is about 21" x 21".  It is for project linus!

Those are very pretty and delicate...nice! Very summery. And I don't think we are totally only allowed grannys...I thought it said motifs too...otherwise I am in trouble, eep!

Nice work - very cheerful (which is great for the charity! Smiley)

@Kittymom: Yes they are! I love baby blankets, I'm making this Heirloom Blanket. And OMG I have that same book! I love collecting vintage crochet patterns...but then again I've always loved the smell of old books. Lol.

@ Lisa: I love your color choices, super cute granny!

I like the giant granny blanket, EnginerdLisa...great colors!  How much bigger does it need to be for project Linus?

Holey Toledo, nfirehazzard!!  You got mad crochet skillz doing pineapples and flowers...is it in thread or sport/fingering weight yarn??  I would love to see progress pics on that...=]

I LoVe old books and yes, I have a ton.  Double great when you can find crafting ones!  I'm hoping to do a pinkish gingham granny blanket from the same book for March...and maybe an Inga bag...gotta move the yarn off of my shelf!! =]

Well, I didn't manage to get much done on my granny afghan this month, thanks to moving and work...But, I did manage to make my very first teddy bear! I had him finished for about 30 seconds before my nephew decided Teddy was his... LOL!

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!

KismetFyrechyld: Cute teddy and the little guy that claimed him!  =]  Hope you can get more stitching done in March!

Here is the finished sundress(or top):


I ran out of the brighter pink yarn and added my own border to it.  I'd like to do another one(or more)of these as I have plenty of baby yarn to use up.

I'm unwinding a couple of old ponchos that were given to me(unfinished) and will go w/this pattern for March:
