Hobo Granny….

.

If I don’t have a hook in my hand and yarn trailing across the chair,,, something is definitely wrong!  The calming sense of the soft fiber and beautiful colors bring joy to my evenings and weekends…  Counting stitches, rows and inches almost seems to ease the worlds worries away!

.

Last night I finished up this beautiful Hobo Granny Bag!     22 Granny Squares joined into this Hobo Style Bag… Maze, Gray, Aqua and Plum yarn  make this bag work for any season… Once it was done, I tried it on for size… I so wanted to keep it!  But like you know if you hang out here very much,,, almost everything is given away to a loved one or sold at Alpine Originals…This lovely bag will be delivered later today for some lucky bag collector to purchase!

Granny Bag….

A Beautiful Granny Bag…  It was time for something new!…  With all the baby items I made for Alpine Originals last month… And working on my own Sunburst Granny Square Blanket… I was so excited to create something new and different!  I love bags and purses!  A couple of weeks ago I posted my Market Bags that were made for the shop and this beautiful bag will be making its way to Alpine Originals as well.

This purse is made using 13 Granny Squares with the joining method I found at Attic 24, I love all the great info she give us crocheters!  I used Caron Pounder in cream as my yarn choice, Bamboo Handle and not showing,,,, A satin liner in Cheetah Print… Super Cute!

.

I have seen tons of Granny Square Bags all over crochet sites lately and was very inspired!  I want to make some colorful ones, large ones and small ones, tons of them… This was really a fun project!! Stay tuned to see what bags come next… And,,, Another Free Pattern is in the works!

So here is to more Granny Square Projects, Bags and Purses and Crocheting!

A Lovely Blanket….

.

My Sunburst Granny Square Blanket is done!!!! I loved the way it turned out, nice size and perfect weight.  Working off and on it took less than a month to complete… I used a ton of my scrap yarn up too!

.

When I presented this lovely blanket in front of my family, I could tell they all admired it….My 17-year-old daughters response was one I kind of expected,,, She asked if she could have it… I haven’t decided if it is hers yet,,, It may need to be a part of our living-room for a bit!
