Orange Granny

After talking about the Granny Along at the WeHo SnB last night, I was compelled to crochet an orange granny square. You can read about it here.

Have a marvelous Easter weekend, everyone!

Thanks, Neil. If you play your cards right, maybe next year's b-day present will be a granny square toaster cover in orange and green! Ha!

Hi LuLu,

If I'm crocheting with acrylic, I don't block my squares. The nature of the stitches, design of the granny square and stiffness of the acryic yarn really don't require blocking. However, if I'm crocheting squares out of 100% wool or 100% cotton, then I run a steam iron LIGHTLY over the back of the squares after I've attached them to each other.

Great granny! Lately I've had an orange crush, and totally dig your squares, Miss E.!

Have fun with your crochet along.

Hi Ellen, I love granny squares. Reading your post is putting me in the mood to start my granny square sweater. It is a gorgeous pattern I purchased this year at stitches from a company based out of New Mexico. Once I find it amoung my deep "collection" of books and patterns I'll share it with you. Thank you for your comment on my needlepoint purse collection. When you have a chance I would love to see you post yours.

Hi Ellen, You don't know me, I am from Brazil and I've just found your blog and I loved it. I love crochet, and I am crazy about granny squares.
I loved the news from L.A. I used to live in LA now I am in Brazil.
