MARCH 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!

It's not a matter of size, but a matter of heart.

I would love to go along with this! I've been trying to finish my mom's throw blanket (with a foot pocket) for almost a year now! I keep getting distracted though... Each granny square uses one entire skein of yarn, so the squares are really big. So far I have 4 squares of 10... I hope I can finish it before her birthday this November!

Nice attitude zippecar...=]  You do end up w/original pieces when attempting something new!  You keep at it and will have good results yet!

Here is the progress on my newest project-snowflake pattern:

First row, first five put together(I've since added three squares) and my first two 'wonky' squares are in the middle.  I'm using one size hook for the white square and a smaller one for the pink outside edge and joining.

I got over half a skein added to my blanket today, in between cleaning house and fighting off a monster headache. Spring has sprung in West Texas, which means gusty winds and blowing dust. Sad But I'll finally get this silly blanket done before this month is over! Cheesy
