The Granny Square

Oh, the beauty of the simple granny square. It is funny for me to look back at how I use to not find it that appealing. I think that is just because I was not fond of the color schemes I first saw granny squares in. But since I have started crocheting again, I love granny squares. They have this wonderful "shabby chic" quality to them. I find myself looking up different motifs and color schemes on Google image search for hours if I am not careful with my time.
I guess the reason why I am a little excited is that I have a lot of extra yarn left over from some projects that I plan on using for a granny square afghan. Yay! :)

Another project I am excited about is a new market bag I plan on making. Here is the first hexagon I made for it. I am loving these colors!


  1. Your hexagon is very pretty. I like the colors together. Have you ever seen the african flower hexagon? It is pretty. I found it on Ravelry.

  2. Thank you for your comment! :) I have seen different African flower motifs, and I think they are beautiful. I am planning on trying it sometime soon.
    Thanks again!
