Hello

:: A Granny A Day : 2012

It’s Autumn. I know that you think it’s all about leaves falling from trees. It is. But it’s also about getting ready to cosy down with some crochet (despite the fact that it is going to be 30 degrees today in Melbourne!) Soon enough it will be crispy and crunchy. I can feel that bite in the air.

I thought we could do ‘A Granny A Day’ again! Do you remember when I started A Granny A Day way back then?  Maybe you don’t because you are here for the first time or new to this blog. That is A-OKAY!

A Granny A Day is a great way to learn to crochet or to build up a good stash of crocheted squares.  You can do one each day or you can fudge it and do one a week, or one every TWO days if that works better.  Just do what is best for you!

You can do nice simple squares or you can do fancy ones. That is entirely up to you, too.  They can all match… or they can be random. In a day or two (I will put up a pattern link post and we can drop in links to cute patterns and motifs, to share and make!)

You can learn to crochet via video tutorial on this very blog here. Or you can click around and find tutorials on YouTube or via Google.  Or you could go to a class at your local craft shop, if that is your kinda thing!

    In for sure!! I learnt to ' Granny' last year and am beyond in love with it!!
    I can't wait to get started ( I may even kinda cheat and do one today haha! Forgive me?)

    Agree with everyone above – I hate the loose ends! I always leave them all till all the squares are finished, then its agony doing them all at once…. I only have myself to blame 😉

    My brand spankin' new blog is: loversnotliars.blogspot.com
    Luvluv,

    Ooh, this might be just the thing I need. I absolutely don't have time for any more projects, but I bought the wool to learn how to make a granny square blanket THIS TIME LAST YEAR! Oops! 'Bout time I rectify that situation 🙂

    I think I might also do Granny A Day to finish off ANOTHER granny blanket I have started but not finished. Oh, it's on.

    Yep I am in. It will give me the motivation I need to use up all the scraps in my growing pile.
    Also, Vicky – I couldn't agree more. The end weaving is the pits.

    Oh – this is awesome! I am new to crochet and have planned to make a geeky blanket for my boy (I hope my idea is simple). This will give me the motivation to actually start. Yippee!

    Hi Pip, Sounds like a wonderful project that I would love to be a part of…I'm in!

    Yay! I'll do it, but mine is probably going to be more like a granny a week. I'd love to get an afghan done one of these days!

    Oh yay! But I kind of haven't finished my granny a day blanket started circa November 2010 (when I first found your blog and your tutorial saved me from crochet frustration!). I think I will do "Sew In Ends" A Day.
