Hip to be Square

Wow, I really apologize for how long it’s taken me to get back here! First I was inundated with work, then we decided last month to limit/block the computer from the kids so I haven’t been on the computer very often, and just last week I got laid off from my job (they are automating it!) so I’ve got time to stop by!

I also brought out an old project about a week ago. I started a granny square blanket awhile ago then put it aside, the baby was born, and it was still in my yarn closet. My friend is very close to having a female baby, and this was halfway done in pink and red, so I brought it out and finished it for her baby shower last week!

This started my current obsession with granny squares! As of today I am the proud owner of “101 Granny Squares”, “99 Granny Squares” and “200 Crochet Blocks” and I’ve finished 16 different squares! They are really fun, and a great stash buster, as I am still desperately trying to use up my stash!

I am currently crocheting as many squares as I can stand for three different square-requesting groups on Ravelry:

Afghans for Pine Ridge

Are looking for any size squares to make into blankets for South Dakotan Native Americans. I’ve made these so far:

Shelly is collecting squares for children with cancer. I’ve made a few already, including:

Sherry is collecting squares for blankets for NICU patients and their parents.

I’ve really enjoyed making these tiny squares. Here are a few:

I am addicted, and hope to post more soon!
