Crocheted Granny Squares Yarn Along 88

Crocheted Granny Squares

I am so glad to be with you for this weeks yarn along...As I look at the picture above...I wish there were more to show you. It has taken me over a week to learn the simple process of a Granny Square...for some reason it just didn't click.

 As you look at each square above only one is even close to being right:) I think I will like the process of crocheting a small square and then piecing them together....but I am not really liking changing colors  much...I feel like I am wasting yarn each time I switch colors...and weaving in the tails is a bit of a pain...but I hope I will get use to all the changes:)

 I really can't wait to get a few squares made to see what a scarf will look like? I have been reading many crochet blogs about making a blanket which takes sometimes 250 squares..Yikes!! That would be a big project for me...but they are small squares and I could make a few at a time right?

I hope you are having a wonderful week reader and thank you for stopping by!!

Many Blessings to you,

Crocheted Doily Yarn Along 86

Crocheted Doily

As you can see above I am working on a little doily making...I have never crocheted doilies and really have never thought about making any....but I have a little table that we inherited and the other day when I was dusting... I kept thinking something was missing...and I have now decided to make a doily for this table. I have made 5 little circles and I will crochet/sew  them all together.  I will then  have to find the starch that you soak the doilies in to make them stiff...I have no idea what that is just yet....always something to learn. I am very excited to see how this will look...I have never crocheted with thread so this is all very new and exciting!!

I hope you had a wonderful week reader,

Many Blessings to you,
