Granny Squares Alot

You all know that I joined theGranny-Along a few months back. Well I got so wrapped up in the granny squares that I went on eBay and bought every magazine I could find on granny squares. I have a pic of many books that Ive bought (dont you love them?) IM thrilled there is already many things in them that I cant wait to make. I did notice that the colors that all these items were made from are coming back in style. I cant wait to get started. Happy Crocheting!

I found this awesome pattern in one of the magazine. It looks like a starfish square doesnt it look awesome? I cant wait to make the square, Ill take some pics while I make it so I can share with you all.

busy, busy, busy


Ive been busy with making Christmas items. I found the cutest little sachet/gift card holder to make for my family. I found them in Crochet Today mag. Ive made several so far. I need to decide how many to make then go on with what else to make for Christmas. I made them with the original color of red and green then made another one for my friend Lisa in varigated purples and pinks it turned out really cute.

Do you remember when I mentioned I was going to make 5 round ripple afghans for my grand kids :) lol Well I keep thinking I need to get started on those. because it is going to take me awhile to finish. And I need to decide what to make my friends this year for a ornament or other item for Christmas.

I made my sister that hat for the summer and I went over to her place and gave it to her last night. She loved it. I even made one for her little girl Jenny. My sister Jerri and my sister Carri are on their way to Alaska today. They are going on a little trip. I know that the hat will come in handy for her.

Well I have more to share with you all but I think this is enough for one journal:) Have a happy weekend!

HnG's Chemo caps

HnG's Chemo Caps


Here they are Chemo Caps. I used CrochetWithDee pattern that she offers on her site for free use for charity work. I love the pattern because it is so very easy to use. I used Paton's Carmen yarn it is very soft and very nice to work with. I hope you can see the colors in the yarn but if not take my word for it, it is really pretty.

You all know my sister is dealing with breast cancer now and she loved her hat I made for her.
I hope you take a few minutes and try her pattern.

New crocheter arises

Heres a pic of my oldest grandchild Alex. She is learning to crochet. She loves it she says. I dont know if that is for my benefit or if she really likes it or not:) But my hopes is she likes it to continue on. I have taught all 3 of my grandkids to crochet now. I dont have a pic of them but I will take a pic soon. I love it they are trying to learn. The other two I have taught to knit as well. They seem to like crochet better but you never know what they will gravitate to next.

Alex was very pleased that she learned to do a chain stitch and a single crochet then attemps at double crochet too. Im going to teach her next to make a ganny square. I think once she learns to do a square she will be hooked like me:) heehee
