I'm getting off topic. So, granny squares. They are without question totally rad. Even just your basic granny is awesome b/c you can do them big, or you can do them tiny. If you go over to Dollar Store Crafts you can make an adorable tiny one as a necklace. I copied her design almost exactly, and gave it as a gift to J's sister for her birthday.
I'm not going to link to a granny pattern, only because I want you to go on a Google (or Pinterest) spree on your own, and discover that they are like snow flakes! No 2 are alike! I have an entire board on Pinterest devoted just to granny square patterns. There is also a great book available The Granny Square Book that has I think 75 or so different patterns in it. I bought it on my kindle and I really like it.
I loved it so much, that I wanted to make my own.
I forget which size hook I used for this square, but I believe it was the smallest one in the pack. It is so very tiny. Make sure you try this on a day when you are not already irritated. The thread would keep slipping off the hook, and it until I got a groove going, it was annoying. In the end though, totally worth it.
Yes, I was snacking on nilla wafers when I was making this. It was the closest thing I had around for a size comparison. I wore it while we were on vacation last month and got tons of compliments on it. My grandmother now wants a table runner made up of tiny granny squares! Maybe for Christmas? Great idea though!
Then I decided to go just a big bigger, and bolder in color. I made a strip of grannies and hung them up at the pharmacy nearest J's apt.
His neighborhood is great to yarnbomb in, they always stay up for a long time.
