Hi I am new. Just joined, from South Africa. Love to crochet! This is something I have made as a gift for a little girl.

Granny Squares…

We had a great response to my last post about the next theme – it sounds like everyone likes the ideas of a Granny Squares theme. The great thing about Granny Squares is that you can make them as large or as small as you want, you can sew them together into all sorts of different things, and you can make them out of any size yarn and hook. So there’s plenty of potential for us to try all sorts of creative things next month.

I’m really excited about this one – I’ve never made a granny square before! Here’s a cute mosaic compiled by scrappythebandit on flickr to whet your appetites:

The new theme won’t start until January 1st, but until then I’d like to ask you all for some help. I’ve already started to collect links and ideas, but I need more! If you know of any awesome granny-square-related links, please send them my way (craft@planetjune.com) and then I can set everything up so we can start the new theme in style in the new year.

Happy holidays!

Daisy change purse

A last minute gift for my sister. She said she wanted a change purse to take with her to the gym, so I crocheted this little one with some left over yarn.

This was my first attempt at adding a zipper, and I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t that difficult.

I just made two more Christmas presents. These are my little mini Geometric Pillows.

 They just measure about 22cm; they are very cute for a girl’s room.

I made the same way has the Bobbles pillow, only this time I used geometric crochet to decorate the front.

Here are my final two Christmas presents:

I bought my grandmother a shirt for Christmas and figured some hangers would be nice. Next time I will use nicer yarn. This stuff drove me crazy.

I totally messed up a little hat for my best friend’s daughter, so I had to hurry up and crochet something. I decided on this penguin since I got her some penguin pajamas.

And here is my second attempt at a hat. I don’t know what it is with me and hats, but I can’t do them.

At least I found a use for this one. 🙂

I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays!

My family decided to pick names for Christmas presents this year and I got my cousin Jamie. I bought her a blue and gray turtleneck sweater, so I whipped up this scarf to match.
