301-304::365 lacy squares

301-304::365

Patterns (left to right): "Hot Pepper" by Janie Herrin & "Minty Fresh" by Jean Leinhauser in 50 Fabulous Crochet Squares; "Dogwood Flower" & "Cone Flower" from The Granny Square Book by Margaret Hubert.

There's not really a common theme to these squares other than that they are more open than the ones I usually make (with the exception of the first one, but the crossed stitches do leave it a little airy). I was really excited to get The Granny Square Book, my first e-book purchase for my new Kindle Fire. Yay for early Christmas presents! Junior is the best boyfriend ever! It is really convenient to use for crochet patterns. Even though this book has a few patterns similar to some I've already made, there are plenty of unique ones among the 75 in this book. And it even has crochet charts. Pretty awesome! There are also a bunch of ways to use granny squares, but none of them are really groundbreaking. My favorite is a mobius* scarf of "Cone Flower" squares crocheted in fluffy, bulky yarn.

*Wow, check out this super pretty mobius wrap pattern!

  2. The squares are great, and it is good to hear that an e-book reader actually works well with patterns.

  3. It never ceases to amaze me that so many square patterns can have been created out of so few stitches! I LOVE the green one with yellow middle :)x
