Haute Couture


It's finally happened. Granny Squares are once again fashionable! My good friend (granny square enthusiast), Mary Jo sent me this link today.
YES!
The granny square is back in a big way. Granted the granny hexagons in these lovely scarves are made from fine merino wool. The amount of labor put into these scarves (changing colors and weaving in all those ends), actually makes $88 sound like a reasonable price. Look for lots of crochet work in fall fashion collections this year.
Check your sock yarn stash to create one of these beautiful scarves!

I was just queuing up some patterns like that, the end weaving would be worth it. (see what you did to me?)

These are so nice. My yougest daughter (17) asked me to teach her how to crochet!

GORGEOUS!!!! My heart's going pitter patter! I got a similar scarf a few years ago in LA and paid $250, so $88 IS INDEED reasonable!
