Wow! It seems like forever since the last time I picked up a crochet hook. There once was a time when all I did was crochet and lately I’ve been kind of missing it. So this week’s WIP Wednesday post is a special on for me because I’ve picked up the hook again. 🙂
The project I’ve chosen is Granny Square Cowl by Alice Best. If you’ve never run across her before, you’re in for a treat! Her crochet creations are a ton of fun and her photos are a delight.
For my cowl, I’ve chosen an assortment of odd and end bits of worsted weight yarn in a whole spectrum of blues. For some of the squares I carefully pick and plan the colors. For others, I like a little whimsy … I close my eyes and stick my hand into my yarn basket. The color I pull out is the color I use next.
I’m working 7 rounds (each a different color) for each granny square and joining as I go. I’m estimating that I’ll need between 6 and 8 squares to make a cowl that will loop twice comfortably around my neck. It is such a fast project to work up … I’ve got four squares finished and am trucking along on the fifth. This is going to be such a toasty cowl when it is finished!
And I have some other really great news …. my fire hoop is on its way! I’m over the moon excited!
I want to thank each and every one of my awesome customers to making this happen for me. You all rock!
