A Granny A Day Til The End O May

April 15, 2009


Guess what? I’ll tell you something cool? I’m going to make a Granny Square each day. I know. It’s mental, huh?! But I’m going to do it. I’m getting pretty quick at Granny Squares – so I’m up for the challenge. I’m going to post my results over the next month and a bit over here at Flickr. You might like to, too! You don’t have to be crazy, daily like me. You can Granny whenever you like. But I’ll be uploading A Granny A Day until the end of May. I’d love you to upload your Granny Square photos as well. Yes I would. Okey doke? Great!

If you’d like to granny with me and you don’t know how, you can refer to the following posts on this very blog for lots of helpful hints!

Hope your day was super good and your internet was super quick (unlike mine!) See you tomorrow with the first Granny! (And I’m not talking about MY Nanna, although she is ACE!) It might be a good idea to upload photos of our Nanna’s too, though….

xx Pip

    I am very late to the party but am in too! The wild weather today is perfect for catching up with a few granny squares.

    I’m in. I just moved and my yarn seems to have bred while it was packed in boxes, so this will be perfect. Thanks.

    I’m in too!
    A granny a day will make that bedspread I’m always planning on making much more achievable.
    Great thinking!

    I cannot for the life of me believe you finally talked me in to this! Things are nuts around here!

    Ohh, what a fantastic idea! Don’t have much spare time at the moment but I will do this project when things are a bit less hectic.

    Hi Pip just found your blog. What a great idea. My grandma taught me how to crochet and we made together a single bed blanket with granny squares. I have been wanting to make one for my kids so now maybe is the time to start. I’ll try and do some granny squares not sure how many I will get done in between all my sewing. Loved reading your blog please pop by for a visit.

    Ok I’m in. I am back at work tomorrow so I don’t know how I’ll go posting a granny a day but will try to post once a week. Please add me to your blogroll too.

    What perfect timing! I had been thinking of making a granny square something (set of cushions or blanket) and just bought some yarn and this is now great motivation to get started.

    Count me in too! Maybe my lonely ‘ole 3 squares will get some buddies and become a blanket that keeps more than my big toe warm! Here’s hopin’

    what a fantastic idea! i’ll post my first for ‘granny a day’tommorrow 🙂

  • Reply Claire April 16, 2009 at 2:15 PM

    ooh me too, me too! I’ve really caught the granny bug since I learnt how the other week : )

  • Reply Lyn Briggs April 15, 2009 at 10:26 PM

    I’ve been thinking about making some granny squares from my left over yarn for some time now but lacked confidence because I haven’t done any crochet for so long. ‘A Granny A day’ will give me the push I need to get started.
    Please join me to your list.

  • Reply Carina April 15, 2009 at 3:13 PM

    Oooh, count me in too! I make granny squares all the time anyway. atleast now I’ll have an excuse! 😉

  • Reply jesska April 15, 2009 at 1:48 PM

    Great idea – I’m in! Now I just need to pick my colours…

  • Reply Alexis April 15, 2009 at 1:41 PM

    I’m going to try to make at least one Granny a day! Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Reply Tracy April 15, 2009 at 1:30 PM

    Sounds like fun ..me too 🙂

  • Reply Kirsty April 15, 2009 at 12:49 PM

    I’m back on the brown horse already so I’d love to granny with you.

  • Reply Elisabeth April 15, 2009 at 12:18 PM

    What a great idea! I’ve been granny-ing a lot recently but have just moved onto a baby blanket for a friend instead. I’ll see if I can’t squeeze a few squares in though, just to take part!

  • Reply Claire April 15, 2009 at 12:13 PM

    YOu are the meme queen! My blog is getting all full of Mikes… but I am SO IN. I can’t remember how to make a granny square for the life of me, I need the refreshers. Thanks! xx

    The first ever posting i did on my blog was about the crochet lampshade i made out of the granny squares i got at a car boot sale, the link to that posting is http://jaboopee.blogspot.com/2009/01/my-first-blog.html

    you’ve inspired me to start learning to make the squares for myself.

  • Reply Sophie Appleby April 15, 2009 at 11:46 AM

    Oh I’m in! I’m doing many granny squares at the moment for a friend’s blanket and am about to start on my own! Would love come granny square company. Thanks Pip, what fun!
