365 Days of Granny Squares Week 2

For Week 2 I figured out that it is harder to go back and figure out which photo is for which day than it is to do the square in the first place.

So I am hoping that you are following along with my 365 Days of Granny Squares travels with Nadia 365 Squares found on Yarnutopia by Nadia Fuad. (https://yarnutopia.com/365-days-of-granny-squares/ ) 

At first, I thought it would be horrible, then I thought it might be a piece of cake, and it is not as horrible as I thought it would be at first, but I have to count carefully. I always said that counting kept crocheting from being fun, but if a person wants variation in their squares, then counting is the only way to make it. And once the crafter picks out a few favorite squares and does enough to squares to complete a project or two, they probably won’t have to count the stitches so carefully either.

I think Day 9 which is set as the featured image for this week is my favorite but it was hard to choose it over Day 14 which was a beautiful spring flower. I am going to follow the footsteps of my friend Sherron Ostrander and not be so worried about which day is which, and just let you guys see the week at a glance.

Thanks for hanging with me. We had lots of snow and ice last week and I was home from work. That means I was able to finish on time. LOL

  1. I think they’re awfully nice.

  2. I appreciate that!

  3. These are beautiful! I learned to crochet when I was a kid and I haven’t done it in a long while. You are making think I should pick up my hooks again!

    • You should get out your hooks and join us. Even if you just do one a week, it will be great fun.

      • I went to the yarn store today against my better judgment. I truly have an entire room stacked with yarn bins to the ceiling. It’s a testament to my procurement abilities. Anyhow, while I was there I got a couple of books and magazine. One of the Noro magazines showed this AMAZING shawl made out of huge granny triangles. I did end up buying a skein of merino to make a hat for Bill. I’m beyond help…

  4. Lovely. I would be har pressed to pick just one favorite. Thank you for sharing e

  6. Glad to hear you are going to be hooking along on a hat project.

  7. I’ve started putting a small piece of masking tape on each square with it’s number on it. That way later if I want to do it again, I can find the tutorial.

  8. I’ve been using cheap baggies and a magic marker. Some of these that are simple would make nice projects later on. The hard ones are just a suffer through one time. LOL

    • Oh, baggies would keep them nice, too. hmm. May have to rethink the masking tape. Of course, if something happens, someone will come along and wonder why we have all these squares in “evidence bags,” lol

      • It shows how much they vary in size. None of them will let you zip the bag which is a shame but some of them have to be rolled up to fit the bag at all.
