Little Gray Grannies

comments: 124


Uh oh. I sense another crochet freak-out coming on. I hooked up one little blossom in a few minutes the other night just for fun and now . . . now look. A creeper. 


I don't have time for the Siren call of cashmerino and baby alpaca right now. Must. Walk. Away. Run. Though it's really tempting to succumb, especially as it is cold, dreary, dark, and rainy outside.

Details to come, I promise.


So sweet! Could you please tell me the name of that type of granny square? I've admired it for almost a year, but can't find a pattern because I don't know what it's called!

I can SO relate. I'm working on a dear little crocheted hat for a neighbor's child, when I really should be doing....other things!
I love your use of light gray as the consistent color for the little grannies, very demure!

I'm thinking this would be a great baby quilt for my niece's one on the way - can you tell me details? hook size, pattern - I'm not one for figuring out crochet on my own. Thanks for the inspiration!


I am totally adoring these. What shall they be!! I can't wait to see the finished project :)

These granny squares are absolutely delicious. Do you sell the pattern or can you tell me where I can get it?Thanks.

Beautiful! I love the colors you picked, they remind me of a walk in the woods... the brownish/green is so soothing!

Very beautiful.

beautiful... HOW MUCH? please get back to me! thank you!!


Oh boy. These are pretty delicious!

They are lovely!

I would so like to know how you make them because I've been inventing my own flower patterns and they are not working the way I wish them to.

Oh. Those grannies are calling me, too. And I don't even know how to crochet.

I have been a lurker forever but this has drawn me "out". What pattern is this? I love it! I enjoy your blog so much. It is such a joy to read. Thank you.

sent the link from friend and love what I see. will have to check out a fair few more pages. Thanks and happy holidays.

Your photos are wonderful..makes me want to pick up the project, sit down, put my feet up and continue on!!!!

This is BEAUTIFUL!!! Maybe my fav thing I've seen you do! Gorgeous! I want to learn!

Well, even if you can't get these done now I'm excited to see what it looks like in the future! I love it already! :)

Ooooh yes!!!
I will post it with a link to you soon ...if permited offcourse!

Love, Love. Love the colors! Looks similar to a 'high desert' color palette we have been using in Central Oregon. Please point us towards a block pattern, if possible. Thanks!

Stunning and sophisticated. My New Year's resolution is going to be learning how to crochet.

So gorgeous. Are you using a pattern that, say, one could find on these Interwebs?

just beautiful, can't wait to see more blossoms. Inspired to try my own

I actually have on my to-do list to make some granny squares over Christmas Break. I'm not sure what I intend to do with them though!


these would look nice in my cottage lol!

just the right muted colours and vintageyness



So sweet, soft pretty. ~Kelly
