Crocheted Granny Squares

crocheted granny squaresYIPPEE, more wonderful squares to add to others and make more warm afghans for those folks at Faith Mission. Those Mothers and Children who receive them will be thrilled. Many thanks Liz (minnisoda in Crochetville) crocheted these 35 granny squares. Love the colors, love the patterns and know they will be easy to incorporate as I begin designing next time.

Trying to wrap up the counting etc of the squares received for our 3 month Give a Square Program. It will not go away, just be dormant for a time period. Please feel free to continue knitting or crocheting your squares, but hold mailing until I send up a flag.

Have you noticed the new tab across the top, or the new badge in the sidebar? Toasty Tootsies Project will be our February Focus.

Stay tuned for final numbers from January's Rainbow Project.

  1. After Mom had her first stroke, she couldn't write hardly at all and couldn't read. She could speak but she had aphasia and couldn't get the right words out but, in therapy, when they handed her some yarn and a crochet hook, she began to crank out granny squares like they were nothing. You have to be able to count and remember to make those so either that part of her brain worked or it was such a part of muscle memory for her that she didn't have to think about it. I have to think about it whenever I start one. Generally I have very little time to do any of that now. It's so far between that I nearly forget how.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
