Remember this little square? I thought I was going to make a beautiful blanket with, well hundreds of squares! And then it hit me, I had to sew all those squares together... The more I thought about, the less I liked the idea.
I examined otherways to make a crocheted blanket, but I still came back to the granny squares... So I decided to follow this lead & take granny to the max!
So much fun to do this during lunchtime or when I am sitting with the kids at the playground or in the evening sitting in front of television!
Too bad for the granny I spotted a great little number to knit & my hands are itching to make it! I'll make it as a gift for someone so I will show as soon as it is finished & given!
What's on your hands these days?
Ps: if you have some leftover yarn & you love to make grannysquares & help a good cause ~ hop on over to Annemarie's Breiblog where you find out how to help the people of Somalia!
It's a good thing to stop & smell the roses at least once a week. Think of all the things that made me happy the past week. So I join Anki's project & count my blessings!
- very happy to have a considered boss who thinks it's absolutely okay to take my wednesdayafternoons off from work (for a couple of weeks) because J. is very tired with the start of this new schoolyear
- very proud to hear J. spell out newly learned words like: ik ~ vis ~ roos ~ maan ~ pen ~
- had fun at the Visserijdagen in Harlingen, my hometown, for as long as the sun was out that is :). Enjoyed the fair with the boys & eat fresh cooked mussels
- found this tin toy ladybug at the tiny fleamarket in Harlingen for only 0,50 eurocents
