Do you dare to wear a granny square?

Do you dare to wear a granny square?
I’m not sure if I’d manage a granny square evening dress…. But I’m loving the cowl I made last week and have been quite excited to show you! I must apologise for the photos, I’ve cropped them right down this week, so you can’t see the whole effect, but let me tell you, it really is lovely, I tried it on my friend to see how it looked on someone and couldn’t get it off her and back around my neck fast enough! Being that we are heading into winter at what seems like a veeeeeery fast pace right now, I’m obsessed with cowls and this I have to tell you, is the first of a series of cowl posts. Cowls are my new thing, neck warmey snuggliness without flappy ends, they are perfection. I’ve got another one on the hook right now which I’ll share with you when it’s finished, but I was also thinking it would look fabulous in Lovely Lucy’s Granny Stripe pattern too! Anyway, let me tell you how I made this one before I run off telling you about others to make! So what do you think? Like this:

Porch pouf Crochet is perfect when you want to shape the yarn into certain shapes, and here´s a big round pillow dressed up with slip stitches. The pattern can be adjusted to fit any size round pillow. We crocheted the top and sides, and just pulled together in the bottom to avoid crocheting with the pillow inside. (The pouf is open under) It is important that the pillow you use for filling is big enough to stretch the cover properly, if you have a really soft and squishy pillow it has to be much bigger than the cover, or use more than one stacked on top of eachother. YarnPickles Fat&Happy, 500 g DiameterAbout 18" Bauble Decoration I designed these little hanging decorations to add some colourful, homespun Hooky Goodness to my Christmas Tree this season, but there's no reason why they can't be used all year round and in all sorts of ways. I've had suggestions for using them as baby rattles, baby mobiles, as tags on wrapped gifts, or simply just as little decorative gifts to pass on to friends and family. These are quick and satisfying little things to work up, ideal to use up those little itty bits of stash yarn that you might have lurking somewhere.

madknittyhouse: Tentacles! - pattern So, my first octopus keyring proved to be so popular with my colleagues that I've been making tentacles for almost everybody i know. *g* So many tentacled little beasties! But hey, it's not like I am not chuffed about this.

Free crochet pattern heart ♥ Mijn excuses voor degenen die geen Engels kunnen lezen, deze post gaat over de Engelse vertaling van het hartje van Karin aan de haak. As promissed here is the post of the English translation of the little heart, designed by: Karin aan de haak. Free crochet Pattern HEART en rosa: Espanõl my creative space... pincushion So I was looking around blogdom, and came across these gorgeous pincushions here, and after a few little linkys found a great pattern here, and of course, I had to make one of my own straight away!! Isn't it cute? Very easy to make, I am picturing an explosion of different coloured pincushions, or I might turn them into dangley decorations, I do so love hanging bits and pieces!.......... Yes, there will definitely be more of theses appearing around here. On another note, would you look at the size of this egg that one of my poor girls squeezed out today! The other eggs are all pretty big too, so you can see the difference!

Fans and Pansies Ripple Blanket This is an original design but is reminiscent of what might have been made a century or two ago. It works well in a solid color or multiple colors. The example is made in light worsted weight mercanized cotton.
