Crochet Along


I have been totally obsessed with grannies lately!  No, not real grannies though I do love old people.  Granny squares, it seems they are everywhere I look!  Maybe they are popular again?  Maybe I notice them because I am obsessed with them?  Either way I have been attempting to convince myself to start and can’t seem to take the leap…sort of like starting a diet.  I decided to see if anyone else would be interested in joining along.  Each week or 2 weeks (we can vote on how often) we will have an assignment or goal then we will check in with each other and post pictures and all that good stuff.  You know…hold each other accountable and actually finish this project! 

Since we will be doing it together I thought we’d take a vote and see what everyone liked best.  Of course we can’t please every one so if you’d prefer another of course that is fine, you will just need to adjust your goals accordingly.   All of the options below are free patterns.  I don’t want anyone to not participate because of cost.  I am also hoping to use up stash yarn but we’ll see!

Option 1
Sunburst Granny

I'm in! I love #3! I also think checking in every week would be better for me cuz I might loose focus or forget if it was every 2 weeks LOL

Just above Scotti it says Inner Hooker on Facebook, that should take you where you want to go. I will do my best to participate, although I am in the middle of a mobius shawl wrap.

I LOVE #3, the Summer Granny. And it's the basic granny square, so what better way to start!

These are all terrific choices. I don't think I'll be joining in - can't bring myself to do so many color changes and so much joining and weaving in ends ... but look forward to seeing everyone's work on it for sure!!
