Two granny squares


First of all, thank you so much for your nice comments and encouragements on my last post about opening of my new etsy shop

Today, I wanted to show you these
granny squares that I crocheted last night...

I self taught how to knit when I was still a teenager (it's been a while since then!), but I'm fairly new to crocheting.    Just like knitting, I taught myself how to crochet only a few years ago, from reading many, many crochet books out there.  And I'm totally hooked ever since!

Using these granny squares, I made a simple pincushion.

First, I quickly whipped up a square pincushion using cotton fabric and filled it with a poly fill.

Then, I sandwiched the fabric pincushion with the two granny squares, and crocheted them together using the gray yarn...

Here is the end result.

Cocostitchさん、いつもありがとう☆ 最近また編み物に凝り始めてしまい、日中も時間を見つけては何かしら編んでいます。 すき間時間にできるのが編み物の最大の魅力ですね。

それから、Etsy ショップの開店おめでとうございます。Amyさんらしいかわいいお店ですね。実は私も開店に向けて準備中なんですよ。と言っても、まだ少し時間がかかりそうなんですが。

Hiromiさん、ダンボールいっぱいの糸、わくわくしますね、いいですね~。 私はかぎ針編みの Crochet ももちろん大好きですが、最近また棒針のKnittingにも挑戦したくなってきています。でも、Hiromiさんの美しい刺し子を見たら刺し子もやってみたいし、ああ、でもクロスステッチもいいな~、なあんて我ながら Make up your mind! って感じでもう大変(笑)。

Very pretty - what a lovely way to use a couple of granny squares. I can't wait to see your future crochet experiments!

Jessica - Thanks! I wish I had enough patience to make a throw, or even a bag out of crocheted granny squares... but since I don't, making pincushions like this one seems just right for someone who is impatient as I am ;)

The pincushion is so absolutely adorable! I just started learning to crochet a couple months ago and I'm enjoying all the little crochet things on your blog! I'm bookmarking your blog!
