Granny a (Sun)day

Sundays are really not my favourite days. I think this is something I got from my Nanna – she didn’t like Sundays either. Sundays are kind of a nothing day. They don’t have the excitement of end-of-week Friday, or the possibilities of first-day-of-the-weekend Saturday. It’s more of a waiting-for-Monday day.

So, I thought I would start a new Sunday Tradition. A Granny-Square-a-Sunday. I know most bloggers seem to go for a Granny-a-Day… but that’s just too much of a commitment for me, haha!

So here, is my first. This is called a Briar Rose.

… and, umm, a second! This is called Coffee and Cream. But I did change the colours.

These are both in “200 Crochet Blocksby Jan Eaton. It’s such a gorgeous book. The patterns are really easy to follow, with three difficulty levels marked. 1 hook = beginners, 2 hooks = some experience, and 3 = challenging. Both these squares had 2 hooks, but they were definitely challenging to me!

Next Sunday’s square is called Edwardian Fancy. Doesn’t that sound Rather Lovely? Now which colour?

Oh, and Moo doesn’t particularly like Sundays either…. Her eyes look a little red in this picture… maybe she had a big night on Saturday?

  1. I am having a lovely time reading through your posts and as soon as I finish typing this I will be look back through even more! Your blog is gorgeous and your crochet is stunning! I love the squares you’ve been making – and I can’t wait to see Edwardian Fancy once you’ve made it! I bought the same book recently but haven’t had a change to have a good read through let alone make any of them yet but you have totally inspired me!! The colours you are using are beautiful.

    Have a fab week hon,

    • Hi Leah

      Thankyou very much for your kind words! Yes, it’s a really great book… I was meant to only make one new square per week, but I’m kind of addicted, haha! I’ve only just started to crochet in 4ply cotton and it’s really nice to work with.

      You have an awesome week too.


  2. I have to say I don’t really like Sundays too. But I like your idea, some kind of Sunday tradition 🙂 I’ve just found your blog and I’m just staring at your beautiful crochet crafts and lovely dog 🙂
