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!

It’s Almost Done… National Crochet Month & Sunburst Granny!

.

I decided to get busy on my Sunburst Granny Square Blanket ..  I’m still not sure of the size I want though, … I now have 45 squares complete and will need somewhere between 48-63 squares to make a nice size blanket!  I am tempted to stop at 48 so I can join them and put an edging on…   I only need 48 to make a twin topper,,, 63 for a queen… Hmmmm!  Well, I will have to decide tonight… I actually could have this beautiful blanket done this weekend if I do 48 squares!

This reminds me of my childhood bedroom colors… My Grandmother Beatrice Ryan Ramshaw painted my room purple for me when I was 8 years old… Loved it!  She made a crochet loopy rug in these colors for my floor… I wish I still had it… Maybe I should make a replica!

.

Don’t forget this is still National Crochet Month… Stretch yourself into learning how to crochet, reading patterns or new stitches!

Here is to finishing projects and National Crochet Month…
