Blankets love…

2 blankets finished lately. One knitted and the other crocheted. I love  them both soooo much. But I enjoyed working on the knitted one more ? I am a novice knitter but I felt in love  with these squares and I decided I have to learn how to make them. After some researches I found Cheryl Brunettes videos on youtube about the mitred squares (that is how they are called) and how to connect them and learned the technique which is veryyyy simple by the way and veryyyy addictive too. Now I am making my second memory blanket (mitred squares) 
Shhhhhh don’t tell anybody. But I am loving knitting more than crochet these days…

Love,

A granny squares love story ❤

By | August 10th, 2016|Crocheted blankets, granny squares, stylecraft yarn, Uncategorized, wips|8 Comments

Hello,

I am a granny squares lover. They are my favorite to crochet. I can’t resist them ?

While cleaning my craft room on Sunday I found 23 squares crocheted long time ago with dk yarn. Oh joy! It was the perfect timing for such a discovery ?

21 small and 2 big squares joined with light cream ❤ I couldn’t wish better…

So I decided to make the smaller ones as big as the biggest while waiting for my yarn delivery to finish my harlequin blanket (see previous post) and finish one or two squares per day…

I am crocheting with Stylecraft special dk, Stylecraft life dk and the new Stylecraft Batik. I love mixing these yarn together and the effect of the plain colors next to the batik ones is just beautiful ❤

Right now I am planning to make the 23 squares big and continue on crocheting 10 rounds squares because the effect is soooo soothing and calming on these summer evenings…

And who knows…maybe… I will be able to make a winter bedspread out of these big squares.. it will be fantastic and I am already imagining it on my bed…mmmmmh ❤

Wishing you a beautiful day my friends,
Love

The stained glass baby blanket 💙

Hello,

I enjoyed very much posting yesterday from my phone that I decided to do it frequently ? I will try to update you with my latest makes as much as I can.

Today I will show you a blanket I’ve made recently for my cousin’s baby boy due in November ?

I really really love granny squares. It is always a pleasure for me to crochet them and I am never afraid of the result. They are always beautiful. They have a vintage feel I adore. So many childhood memories…

This one is crocheted with Stylecraft special dk and Stylecraft life dk with a 3.5mm hook. I love its fresh colors and its stained glass look ❤

It measures approximately 75 x 90 cm

It is flying from Lebanon straight to the US where I am sure it will be cherished by both the baby and his mum ?

Wishing you a wonderful weekend,

Love
