Grannies, grannies everywhere

Ok, so these crochet granny squares have become a slight obsession. I am definitely going to make a blanket. I have made another 7 squares this week.

I think I might need some more wool!

I have also been working on my Granny Squares quilt. I have at last finished the blocks and have managed to sash them this week. I just need to add some borders and the top will be done. I started this quilt in March so it has taken a while to get to this stage. I am really pleased now with how it is coming together.

I am linking up with Catherine at Knotted Cotton. Today is the inaugural slow blogger linky party. There is no doubt about it I am a slow blogger!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend.

After 2 weeks holiday by a very large lake we are back to civilisation. We spent a lot of time swimming, running and fishing, feeding ducks and lots of time in the sauna. You just can't beat a wood smoke sauna and then a jump in the lake!

I couldn't quite face the gazillions of purple hexies I still need to make for my sanity quilt so thought I would teach myself to crochet instead. The first attempts were pretty ropey as you can see.

But now I am hooked on these little granny squares. I wonder if I can make enough for a blanket!
