Crochet Grannys

Grannys1, originally uploaded by EMCphotos.

I'm not sure what these little squares will grow up to be...maybe a cushion/pillow, maybe an afghan, maybe a stack of squares that will be in my crochet bag along with the african flowers, japanese flowers, hexagons, etc. Who knows?? Who Cares?? They were just so fun to make and take a photo of that I am completely satisfied wherever they end up...

Please visit the link party at Sarahndipities. Ton's of cool, inspiring stuff!

Crochet Japanese Flower Multi-Colored

Changed it up a bit with this wonderful wooley goodness! My favorite yarn of all time by Chystal Palace Mochi Rainbow. I love how it turned out and no color changes and only two ends to work in. I may have to make something from these which would mean I would have to buy more of this yarn. Oh Darn! :)
