I am still slowly plodding on in my mission to catch up with the 1 a week granny square pattern from Simply Crochet, and have managed to rustle up a couple more! Welcome to the pack – First Granny, Granny Thelma, and Granny Joyce.

The finished pile is gradually increasing, only 22 to go until I have caught up! Luckily, I am really enjoying making them!

Granny Square A Week Blanket Project: Part 1 – I Have Set Myself A Challenge….

Every week for the last few months I have been downloading a free granny square pattern through the granny square app by Simply Crochet. I think they are brilliant – I cannot believe the variation you can get from just a granny square! I like them so much I have been thinking of something I could do using them, I have finally decided (after 28 patterns and counting) to make them all and join them up into one big quilt.

I am going to aim to make the one granny square each week when I download the pattern, however, the downside is that I have quite a bit of catching up to do before I can get to doing this (only 28!!). I have just managed to get started and so far have made 3 of them: Granny Edna, Granny Pat, and Granny Doreen. I think they look great! I haven’t stuck to a colour scheme I am just going to make them with whatever wool leftovers I have.   I am going to make them all first and then set about joining them together as then I can lay them all out and decide the best layout for them before attaching together. I will put up the next ones as soon as I get them finished, 3 down and a long way to go…
