Bright granny square fun



What started out being a need to just play around with bright colors, soon became a fun granny square project. In my head I just want a nice bright pillow on my couch come spring to make me happy and what suits it better than white joining? It is timeless, classy, modern, fun and I actually find it very Scandinavian. I mean this "using white as joining color" is  atrend that started years ago and I always wanted a creation in this design.

I am using my Tilda yarn in just a random mix of bright colors. You can buy Tilda yarn in my Yarn Shop. I whip up a few at night in fronbt of the TV, fasten off the ends the next evening. Add a round of white. Just top realize I want another row of white... A bit of a waste of time and double fastening off ends but hey. It is never to late to change your mind on something when crocheting right? I love working on this project and I hope I will follow through and finish it soon and not in 2015 sometime... You know what it can be like sometimes.

I am off for a girls' weekend in 10 minutes (I better get going NOW!!!). Picking up 5 of my favorite girls who are flying in from Sweden. We will drive up to Gstaad tonight and the champagne is chilled and ready for our arrival. And then there will be skiing, with some new snow (YAY!), raclette night out and just a lot of giggles, laughter, dancing on sofa's and to much wine in PJ's. That is how it usually ends up anyway. All us 40+ ladies turn into young 20 something in our souls when we get together. It is a nice feeling.

Happy weekend all and see you next week.

  6. Very pretty squares, the white makes the colours pop! I have a weekly CAL if you need incentive to keep this project going - I started it so I wouldn't slack off with my hexie project! ;-) I hope you have an awesome weekend with powder-soft slopes, fabulous wine and lots and lots of giggles! Happy memories! Chrissie x

  9. I've started my first granny square crochet blanket after being inspired by you, I too decided that I needed a cream around the edge, next I have to learn to join all my squares together - they are perfect to crochet in front the TV of an evening. Thank you for the inspiration. Hope you enjoy your weekend.

    I've picked up your blog again after a short time away and I'm loving the bright colours and gorgeous creations.
    The weather here in the UK has been grey and horrible so your blog is a very welcome splash of gorgeousness!

  17. The colours are very lovely! I have crocheted a lot of projects but never used white as a joining colour. Something I definetly want to do in the future. After I've finished all my other projects!
