Grannying along

I noticed that I can knit and crochet when the project is small enough. The wool jumper for DS1 is still waiting to be finished; I gave up on it several years ago after I needed cortisone shots in my knitting elbow. Knitting this little bunny was easy and fun. I created my own pattern by adding her a skirt. I think her name is Milly.


His name is Billy, and they are friends now. Later this year they will take a flight to Australia, where they will meet the other softies for Mirabel and find their new families.


Pip from Meet me at Mike's has been crocheting granny squares and showing a new one every day, and will continue until the end of May. I have been playing along more irregularly. Today I can show you five of my latest creations:










They may grow bigger still, so the yarn ends are all just hanging there. My yarn stash is a little dull, these are all leftovers from knitting socks for the family. What a lovely excuse to buy new yarn in lovely colours!
I have been sewing too, but I forgot to take pictures. The bags can wait for another day!

  2. I love your squares!
    I wondered what the loops were for, but that was a clever idea. I mught have to do the same :-)
    I wanted to join the granny-a-long, but tried to hide the urge. Then I saw your "blue" quilt and decided to make some of squares, too.
    Have fun!

  3. Milly and Billy are so darn cute! What a perfect pair. I'd love to join the granny a day if I could just figure out how to do a granny square. Lots of you-tubes, on line tutorials and I haven't mastered it yet. Love yours.

  6. Milly and Billy are a sweet couple. :-) I do like the subtle colours you are crocheting in. They remind me of landscapes.
