Third Time’s A Charm Baby!!!!

According to Kim — Yeeeeehaw!!!! 😀    Sidebar — go check her out.  She’s all kinda knitter/crocheter awesome and no, I’m NOT exaggerating.  I don’t know how she cranks out those super intense projects so quickly.  The woman is a machine!!! 

Now back to my “Precious” — there’s nothing else to say, I’m just going to let the F.O. speak for itself.

Behold …. (yes, I’m this corny — I prefer quirky — in real life 😀 )

It actually looks like a square.  Thank you, thankyouverymuch!  😛  Now it’s on to getting some yarn together so I can do some granny square throw pillows for my couch. 

Seriously though, although I initially used these instructions, it was the pattern in this book that connected the dots for me.  I did it with the new instructions 1 time and I was good to go.

Project Details

I can’t speak to any of the other instructions for stitches in this book but if the Granny Square instructions are anything to go by, I’ll say that I’m in for a treat!   It’s crazy, I picked up this book on a whim for $5.99 at a local bookshop; so far it seems to be a gem.  The reviews on Amazon about the book don’t seem to be very good, but for me so far so good.

    You’re doing great, and that’s awesome that the book helped you out! That books sounds like a keeper to me. It’s always nice when a technique clicks.

    I haven’t made any granny squares since before I was on vacation in South Carolina. But you’ve inspired me to start adding to my pile again. I haven’t posted my granny squares since I featured them in a work in progress (you can find that post, by clicking on my name/link.) I guess I need to rectify that, since I’ve added crocheted flowers to some of my granny squares

      Thanks Opal! That book was really helpful, I was surprised the reviews were so poor.
