Next I pulled out some blue and white and yes....another granny square blanket has emerged.
Because I do a lot of crochet for charity, I quite often have people give me their left over yarn, or they will find a bag of yarn at a yard sale and buy it for me. Sometimes in those bags of yard sale finds are already completed granny squares!!! I am now working on a black, red and white granny square lap blanket made with some donated squares. But I only had 9 squares and I needed 10 for the blanket I had in mind, soooo I dug through my stash and found some yarn that was close enough to make the last granny square....it's taking shape quite nicely if I say so myself. (that blank spot in the middle with eventually be filled with black crochet!!!)
All of this stash busting effort was begun this past Wednesday (today is Saturday!!) Needless to say, my house is surely not as clean as I would like for it to be....but I'm definitely Bustin' some Stash!!!!
The basic granny square is not something I ever really think about needing a pattern for. Once you learn it you can do up variations of it without much thought at all. But for those of you looking for patterns I have provided my basic granny pattern at the end of this blog.
