Granny Mad...part deux

What have you been up to recently? I've been working mostly on the quilt project, but will show you more of that soon... (just trying to keep you all on your toes!) Today's post though is dedicated to Grannies. Well granny crochet squares that is. You can dedicate this post to your granny as well if you like, but it's not obligatory. 

I've said before I'm not sure what I'm making with these grannies - I think I'm just playing around and seeing if I can make interesting designs. I'm definitely not being very speedy with them! The pattern for these could be really easy but I'm not good at following patterns and I got this one wrong about a million times over! But anyway - these are the grannies I made this week.

The pattern was designed by Chris Simon from Yarn Crazy and you can find it here. I love the flowers! I think they have turned out really prettily in the end - so lots of hard work but definitely worth it!

These are gorgeous!
Congrats on your crocheting skills! I've just started learning myself and I can NOT get the hang of being in control of what I make! Hehe. So I'm just making lots of messy circles at the moment! Any tips on how to make things this beautiful? :)
Can't wait to see more! :)

Awwww! I think your granny...squares...look really nice! I'm not a fan, generally, of granny squares. They remind me of old fashioned times. But there's always exceptions. I do think though, that when they don't have too many colors, maybe just 2 or 3, they can be really modern and pretty. I can't wait to see how yours turns out.
