Over the years I have made some tweaks and changes when I use A Better Granny Rectangle. I thought it was time to share those changes in a new post. There are 2 versions included here.
My current work in progress. I have been thinking about a new mitered blanket for some time. I was inspired by some vintage ones I had seen where each motif abutted the others without a border around. I liked the look of that. I tried making them in single or double crochet rows same as the ones I had seen, but didn’t hit on anything that really satisfied me. Every now and then I would see another on the web somewhere and I would want to make one again.
I ended up with a variation of my mitered granny square. I did some tweaking of the pattern so it worked more neatly, which is needed since I won’t have the border around each square to hide any untidiness. I like the results!
I changed the pattern for the squares a little bit from the original one. Continue reading “Mitered Granny Square v2.1”
My daughter loved her blanket!
Here is a closer look at the border, (this photo is closer to the actual colors)… Continue reading “Restful Ripple Ta Dah and Border”
My daughter has hinted that she would like a crochet throw, so I am making her this one as a gift. I was planning on making a ripple blanket for myself and I decided to do this one for her first. Hope she doesn’t read this blog!
Lots of tedious sewing and weaving of ends has been done! I don’t have a photo of the entire blanket, but you can get the feeling of it in these…

I ran across this little cat toy, Jingle Bell Mouse on Ravelry and just had to share.
The pattern is available at The Yarn & Hook. Great little scrap project, and I think my daughters cats would love these. They would also be a cute little gift for the mouse lover, with or without the jingling. Can’t wait to make some!
I have been hard at work making lots of the little solid granny squares. I thought I would find it tedious after a while, but they were so quick to make that I just kept churning more out.
And lots of sewing together begins…
