So here we go with the next generation of the granny square parasol. This time I put together some squares, triangles and granny pentagons around a granny octagon which is the center of the umbrella. I choosed 13 colours plus black for bordering and joined them like a swirl in rainbow order. When I finished with the tiny granny squares I tried the project on the base and found it... BORING! It was too... "heavy" to see! So I decided to break the line of it and finished with triangles for a "dangerous", pointy look! @;)
I designed it during the long way to home from Poland, after a crazy weekend ( more about the trevelling and the exhibition here: www.flickr.com/photos/babukatorium/5880612751/in/photostream ), inspired by the oldest daughter of Vagina Cafe's owner called Anna. She loved the first Granny Square Parasol ( www.flickr.com/photos/babukatorium/5794836620/in/photostream ) and took a lots of pictures about it! She shown me the photos on the camera and promised me to send them for publishing for You... but it seems that we have to wait a little bit longer because the camera has broken and takes time to repair it (if it's even possible)! >;( Until that moment let's try to enjoy this new one with another wonderful model! XD It won't be that hard, I hope! LOL

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

Normally I am not a huge fan of crochet, but this rocks my socks off. I love the colors and the pointy ends are my favorite!

I love it. Is there a stronger word for just 'love'? I adore it! Better even, I soooo want one! I love the colours, the look, everything. Once again, an amazing job! You really rock the crochet forum!
