Tangled Happy is committed to showcasing creativity,initiatives,projects and ideas, I have been lucky enough to have some of my hooky pursuits featured in her lovely blog. A real thrill.
It is also one of the blogs I follow regularly and I am never disappointed by Sara's choices.
I love Granny Squares, I know some of my friends think me lazy because I tend to shun fancy borders. I have blogged often about my inability to work more than about 15 of the amazing 200 squares in Jan Eaton's wonderful book. But actually I am at my happiest just working with my hook and the repetition of the treble stitch.
But all this is possible, and yet create a new look. A slightly quirky look. Well. that is right up my street.The mitred square grabbed my attention and working with my favourite blue combo I started to work on a new blanket for my Godson and his wife. A new baby boy is coming to their lovely little family in September.
The ways you could arrange the squares is endless but I wanted them to look as if they were tumbling down the blanket.
Sometimes when you finish a project you really love it and I truly do!
Finished off with my favourite Picot edging. This time I wanted the little loopy bits close together so it was single crochet for four spaces, Five chains and single crochet in the same chain. Continue in this way all around the border.
Perhaps You would like to make a Lappy with the mitred square in your favourite colours. If you do I would love to see a picture.
