For the love of Granny Squares

I LOVE granny squares.  I love their simplicity.  I love their color (or lack of).  I love how they transport me back to my childhood.  I love how I feel close to my mother & grandmother when I'm making them.

Granny squares were the first thing I learnt to crochet - I made myself I giant granny square bag that I took to school for awhile (it was the 70's!).

Here is my latest crochet project - a granny square cushion.  I used yarn left over from my ripple rug.


  1. I'm with you, LOVE granny squares!! They take me right back :) I like how they used to be made with any and all sorts of leftover colours thrown in together, and still they always looked wonderful!
