Still going at it with the granny squares! I am the s-l-o-w-e-s-t crocheter this side of the Milky Way, though. I'll think I'm being so speedy — until an hour passes and I stop to admire my pile of two. Whatever, I'm having fun!
These granny squares aren't the only blocks I'm working on 'round here! Last weekend my daughter, Marissa, bought me the odd-color yarn needed for a Spirit of St. Louis costume-themed square! And there's an architectural-themed one planned too, but it's going to require coffee, chocolate and Pamprin to figure out the pattern.
I am also working on my first vintage potholder — and by working I mean: I've printed out the pattern. One of the ideas I gave over on A Burning Love For Potholders and Oven Mitts Ravelry Group is to crochet a potholder representing each one of the 12 months -- from holidays to zodiac signs! So I picked a decorative rose potholder for January, a symbol for the Rose Parade!
I'm so happy to have discovered how enjoyable it is working in squares! I love how portable it makes a project! And block ideas keep stacking up, one of which will be knitted, fer sure! That one will also debut yet another "inspired by" theme. I absolutely cannot wait to share the details, but I am going to wait until a few more things are in place.
Good thing I have a lot of crocheting to do while I wait. The I-Can't-Believe-It's-Already-Spring-I-Wish-It-Were-Winter-Again-Blanket needs one-hundred eight squares. At last count, there was eighty-eight to go. So I'm thinkin' it may get done by the end of summer.
