Groovy To Be A Square 'Granny Square' Maker

By the time Fall/Autumn season arrives, I am ready for the change in weather and more than ready for swapping Capris and T's for Slacks and Sweaters.  As you can see, I got in the Fall Color mode a while back...like in August...with Granny Squares and Fabrics.  It is part of my 4R Fiber BlowOut Bucket List in preparation for the Fall Season Sales I will be doing on the First Saturdays of October, November and December. 
The batch of Needle Keeper Books are finished and ready for this coming Saturdays sale.  I had a fun time sewing this combination of 1930's fabrics for the cover which has a definite feel of Autumn.  Inside each of the Needle Books are a few vintage notions from my collection.  I love the way they turned out. 
The 'Granny Square' was the first crochet block pattern I learned to make.  It was long before I ever thought about being a 'Granny', and thought it a funny name for my 1960's Poncho pattern.  I loved it so much that just about everyone on my Christmas List got a 'Granny Square' something or the other.  I was an 'OverDoSixtiesSue'. 

I am enjoying the 'New Granny Square' patterns and variations on the old one. 
 My 'Crochet Items Pinterest Board' is full of 'Groovy Granny Squares'. 
 I know, nobody says 'Groovy' anymore...especially in the same sentence as 'Granny'.
That'd be sooooo Square!

  1. Oh I am envious! I've always wanted to know how to make granny squares. I picked up knitting, sort of, but could never make sense of crochet. LOVE your granny squares, Sue, and your needle books are pretty and useful...double whammy!
