Oye!!! So I made another motif. I actually found another granny square project I want to make —

Yep!!! That puppy right there! Ain’t it beautiful? I’m going to use it as my long term — One A Day project. I want to either do a throw pillow or an afghan!
To make sure I got the tutorial down pat, I tried the motif tonight and voila!
No! I’m not going to use those psychedelic colours. 😀 This is just practice but I’m pretty pleased with it. So much so, I’m going to dig some yarn out to start this tomorrow. 😀 The pattern says that before joining, the motif comes out more round than square but joining really opens the pattern up. I can’t wait!
On another note, it’s disgusting that staying in my pjs and crafting all day with some intermittent T.V watching and a three hour conversation with my mom has been my absolute best vacation day so far. 😀 Wish I could have more days like this.
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.
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.
