Granny square sampler status

Granny 2

Here's my first week's homework made from my original stash of yarn.

May 28


Nine more colors arrived on Saturday and I quickly got working on this week's assignment. I'll probably keep going until I get to 14 three-round squares. I'm up to 20 colors, but I feel like the palette is cohesive if a bit crazy. And purple? Loving it these days, especially next to green.

I am really enjoying this project, especially since someone else is telling me what to do - thank you, Blair! If it were left up to me, I'd probably keep crocheting until I was burned out and then it would sit for a few months until I got the urge to work on it again. The one week at a time approach is great for me right now. It's a good lesson in patience (waiting for the next assignment) and follow through (getting a week's worth done on time). All good things.

It's not too late to join in, you know.

My yarn is arriving today for this week's assignment. I love your color palette - so beautifully spring-y. I think this approach is great for me too - I have so many things that I *want* to do that I end up spinning my wheels. The pace of this is perfect. Yay for Blair!


Loving your colors. I finished up week 2 last night. I feel like I'm using too many colors, but I can't help myself!!


I really like the cream, green and blue one!


i love your squares, and am a bit envious about using all the deliciously picked wool...
i'm working on reducing my stash...

I'm de-stashing too, so the colours are just what I have...I haven't learned how to stop though, my 14 became 20, they were just too addictive! :D

I keep thinking I will join in. I want to so badly. But I kind of have a feeling it would be a bad idea with the upcoming move. Regardless, I love seeing your progress! xo, r


I'm using up some of my cotton yarn for mine! I just started and caught up this weekend, it's so fun to make regular granny squares!


Love them, Erin. I only have the first week done, but I am eager to crochet the 14 for this week. I think a bit of stash and a bit new is perfect. And Blair's system works perfectly for me. The idea of crocheting a blanket is daunting, but itty bitty tasks is doable.


i know i've said this already (tonight) but i'm so glad to be doing this together!
