Make it Monday ~ Stained Glass Granny ~ 4/20/15

 
 
 
 I have four crochet projects in the works right now.  The one I'm currently focusing one I'm calling "Stained Glass Granny".  I just love working with granny squares.  It is so fun to finish each one and have small accomplishments along the way.
 

I'm starting with a basic solid granny square.  I'm then outlining it with a row of black.


I'm using a total of 8 different colors.  So far, I have 22 squares completed. 



The finished afghan will be 5 blocks by 7 blocks.  I'll then add a border in black and the colors used in the squares.

 
I've seen much more elaborate stained glass squares, but I think I'm going to like the finished product.  I hope to get a good bit done this week as I'm recuperating from gallbladder surgery and have to take it easy.

Please leave me a comment with a link so I can return the visit!!

  1. I so admire this kind of skill. I tried to learn to crochet as a girl; it didn't stick. Maybe I'll try again someday. I love your stained glass granny project. Visiting from Making Your Home Sing Monday. :)

  3. Hello, I just loved how you called this a stain glass project! I also love to make granny squares!
    I find it so relaxing and then I can put them all together and make a blanket or lap pad!
    I find working on a square to be so relaxing in the evenings!
    Well, I hope you come visit me soon! Happy Spring Time...

  9. I love this. It reminds me of the afghans my mother made when I was a child. In fact she taught me to crochet with a granny square pattern almost exactly like this. The black is beautiful around the colored squares. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Yes I do. Granny squares and more. I blogged about my mom's granny squares here, http://mykeeponkeepingon.blogspot.com/2014/08/an-afghan-and-memories-of-my-mother.html. My blog is really a conglomeration of random thoughts with a good deal of posts about crochet. Did I mention I love to crochet? LOL! And I'm always on the look out for crochet themed blogs for inspiration and ideas.
