GSC Week 49

Here we are with three weeks of the year left. I have been wondering this whole time what to do with all of these granny squares and have been looking around for Ideas. I have toyed with the thought of donating some the squares, but I have not really found a charity in the United States to send them to. I do remember seeing a charity in the UK that was featured in the "Simply Crochet Magazine" so in the new year I will look it up and see if I can send some of these squares off to them.

My blog for the coming year will have posts about what happened to the 365 squares, were they used in projects, were they donated, or other??????????

The squares for this week are from the book "100 Colorful Granny Squares to Crochet" by Leonie Morgan. The next few weeks the squares will be make with all of the left over yarns that I have been using this past year.

GS #338- Carnival-(Page #42 in the book)

GS #339- Parade-(Page #42 in the book)

                  These first two squares really stand out when you used many different colors!

GS #340- Flame Flower-(Page #44 in the book)

I love this flower but it was really hard to get the block straight after tacking the flower to the block.

GS #341-Fire Star-(Page #44 in the book)

 This square would look great if the background was black but I didn't want it to look like a halloween block.

GS #342-Tutti Frutti-(Page #50 in the book)

This is an easy square but the trick is getting it square and all of the rows completely even. It would have come out much better if I would have used cotton yarn.

GS #343-Flower in Web-(Page #52 in the book)

This was another one to get into a square. I think I would reduce the amount of stitches in the last three rows to get it in shape.

GS #344-Miter Box-(Page #58 in the book)

I have made a few of these types of squares but have never been able to get it to come out even. I  blocked this one with pins and it did not make much difference.

I hope you enjoy this weeks squares!
Happy Crocheting!
