Work in Progress Wednesday - {07-03-12} Granny is cool

Hello Wednesday *waves*
Argh and what a windy, gloomy day it is in West Sussex! Since last week, I really have not achieved as much as I would have liked, Phoenix had problems with his asthma this weekend which resulted in a couple of A +E trips on Saturday, Poor boy has come down with a horrid virus so he is still feeling lousy and just wants snuggles with mummy.
I Did however manage to get My Classic Granny Square tutorial done, and up on the blog on Monday, Crochet IMO is so much easier to learn when you have a visual guide , so I hope my tutorial is clear and easy to follow, and that it helps someone wanting to have a go at making those addictive yummy squares.
I have only managed to complete three squares since Friday, and few rows on my Pogona, which I was working on last night, I have noticed that have somehow managed to move the stitch markers along and out of position in one section of the pattern! How I managed that I do not know! Thankfully I noticed before too much damage was done! But I am not going to rip back; I will do more harm than good! {Haha thankfully I am not a perfectionist when it comes to my knitting! Otherwise I would never get anything done!}
For other WIP visit Tamis :D

  2. Grannies are awesome and indeed addictive, although it's been a while since I last made one...mmmm, so many other projects on the go! That yarn you use for you pogona is adorable, it's your own right? I kind of love that you made a mistake, is that a bad thing? Makes me feel like it is ok to have mistakes in your work! Although I don't really see the mistake on the pictures.

  7. Crochet definitely is easier with a visual. I've had yarn sitting in my wool draws for about 6 months, waiting to be crocheted into granny squares for a blanket.

    The postman delivered your parcel today, it's gorgeous!!! Thanks so much...when my kids let me, I'll choose a pattern for it :D

  9. What a lovely Granny square! I'm currently debating whether to teach my beginners this or flowers on Saturday - with pictures like this, I think it'll be Granny all the way!

    Sorry your little one is poorly - hope all is better soon :)
