It has been a wonderful time crocheting these squares.

When I first mentioned this to my husband, he was a little skeptical but he did not reject my idea.

After seeing the first few squares, he was happy with what he saw.

And I was surfing the net the other day, trying to see the beautiful granny squares out there, he saw a picture of a crocheter (who happens to be a granny), and he asked,”This is the granny, is it?”

I snickered… and explained to him what are granny squares.

It had been four nights of granny-ing away before I sleep. 

It is good therapy as it helps relaxes my ever so tensed brains and also allow me better sleep.

At work, I tell myself that I have got to finish what I have on my table so that I can go home and have a good time granny-ing away.

These are what I have done so far.



 

 

 

 

 

With the recent disasters that hit Australia, New Zealand and Japan,  I decided that I can do more than pray for the victims.

I decided to pull out my yarns from shortage and join in this Crochet a Rainbow project by Sarah.

She is collecting granny squares to be combined into granny squares blankets which she will send out to the three countries in need of some bright colours.

I love her idea and I can crochet (slowly…) so I jumped into it.

I am trying to get my mum to join in the crocheting too.  She was the one who “taught’ me how to crochet when I was around 10 years old. 

However, she only taught me how to do chains…and the rest I figured it out myself.

I have started two days ago and being a slow crocheter, I took an average of 30 minutes to crochet a granny square. 

However, I am enjoying it tremendously as it serves a few purposes.

1. It helps relieves my stress.

2. It is therapeutic.

3. It relieves my needs to craft.

4. I know these granny squares will bring some warmth and smiles to the ones receiving it.

5. I know I can help.

6. I can clear my stash of acrylic yarns.

7. I can have an excuse to buy more yarns if I ran out.

If you crochet do join in… the more the merrier.

If you don’t crochet, this can be one project that motivates you to learn this skill. (It is really easy… trust me)
