Say hi to the granny square machine!

Hi, Hello, it's me, the woman who doesn't crochet anything but granny squares anymore! 
Honestly, I really like those squares. They are quick, they are versatile, you can make nearly ANYTHING out of them, they're easy to transport and you can make them without having to think. 

But boy, do they get annoying when there's nothing else! 

See, I promised my man that I would use up the amounts of wool that have been accumulting in our tiny appartment! And one BIG heap of wool is the one that I use for my Mario Blanket. Now I know that it is a gargantuan task to crochet 252 5-rounds granny squares in just 5 different colors. But I wanted to tackle it and so I'm working everyday on getting these squares done. I realised that I probably have to order more yarn and so I switched from crocheting them one by one and sewing them together to crocheting ALL the squares of one color to see how much yarn I have to order. And that's exactly what I did last week, starting with the dark blue. Only 20 more to go. And then the brown ones. And the reds. And the yellows. Peanuts. 

And if this wasn't enough I crocheted up some granny squares (one can never have enough of them!) for my hot water bottle cover at the crochet along. I was a little behind but I managed to catch up over the last days. I didn't really like it when I had first finished the squares but once they got sewn together and I had crocheted the white rounds I really started to find them pretty. I always fall for blue, it's my favourite color!

  1. That blanket is amazing!! You have one lucky fellow :) And the hot water bottle is gorgeous, loving those colours!

  2. Oh yes, he's very lucky! ;) I love the colours too, I made my larksfoot blanket with this yarn and I smile everytime I see it! It really is lovely! And it's Schachenmayr Catania Grande, which might interest you, as I saw that you've bought Schachenmayr yarn in Berlin!
