Puffed Flower Granny Square - 100% Virgin Acrylic Yarn
I read Drew's post yesterday about Heartmade Blessings. He is part of a group that puts together comfortghans for people in need. He's looking for donations of afghan squares for the group. Drew has all the specifics on his blog regarding how big to make your comfortghan squares, what type of yarn to use, etc.
I L*O*V*E crocheting granny squares. I've often said that "granny squares are the building blocks to fashion." When the crochet craze of the late 1960's, early 1970's came on, I couldn't wait to learn how to crochet so I could make some granny squares and put them together in a long vest to wear over my muslin peasant blouse and blue jeans. Squaw boots were in style at the time too. We were oh so colorful back then!
30 + years later and, surprise, granny squares, brightly crocheted clothes and the flower-child look is back. Thank goodness I honed my crochet skills early so that I'd be prepared for this fashion comeback!
