My creative space.... Granny Love

It's just not complete without totally bad iphone photography is it?  And the one below is a real treat - taken by my husband in the dark lounge with no natural light while screaming at Offspring on tv.  And the pink wheat sack perched neatly on my shoulder... that's because I woke in the morning completely unable to turn right.


Still looks pretty though, yes?  My 180 circles are ever so slowly getting their white borders and being linked up to a lovely colourful neighbour.  Three rows down, ends sewn in, only twelve more to go!

And just because one bad iphone photo is never enough...
here's another!


Other creative types hang around over here.  Feel free to join us!

  1. Ooh it's such a good idea to sew in the ends as you go! Not a nice job to be left with at the end of a massive blankie!
    It already looks lovely and warm, cant wait to see it in12 rows time!
    Hope your neck and shoulder feels better soon!

  5. Oh, that looks fabulous! I think I'm gonna do mine the same way, edging them all in the same colour and then sewing together. It's gorgeous!

  6. There is just something so lovely about a granny circle square, all edged in white - it really makes it pop. Loving your blanket so far! I've just started a puff circle blanket but I'm only close to 5 being finished, out of 80...hmm, still a bit to go for me :-P

  9. 1. Glorious.

    2. I was screaming at Offspring too.

    3. I made a circle-in-square granny blanket a lot like that, but I am yet to weave in the 3,457 yarn ends.

    4. So I just refer to the reverse as the shag pile rug. (sigh).

  10. Very nice. I just posted that I have 8 circles to finish before I can start the squares for my 168 circle blanket, but now I am wondering if it needs to be 180 circles?

  19. I had to do a double take there. From the thumbnail image on Our Creative Spaces I thought you were wearing a granny square dress. Now there's a possiblity I had never considered before.
