I am still fond of granny squares, and I’m still churning out mine like anything, but I do think they are just meant to be a side-project. They can get so monotonous that I really think you need another project to keep the motivation high.
I’m also getting scared of all those ends that I’ll need to hide and all that sewing together that’ll need to happen before the project is complete
I feel myself getting cold feet. And I kill hours Googling swimsuit coverups, shrugs, vests, skirts and anything with a lacy design.
So for a while I briefly ventured into my favorite territory – pineapple country ❤
… Only to unravel it and include it in my g-square stash because I’m not so much into the pumpkin color. (This one’s supposed to be a fancy scarf but if that’s to be then I want it in black).
On the sunny side, I do think the g-squares have instead helped me find what I’d like to focus my crochet energies on: wearables. And I think a good place to start would be with a shrug – in granny squares! But I’ll look into lacy motifs because anything else wouldn’t look appropriate in a tropical climate like Indonesia’s 🙂
Meanwhile, I use my granny squares as a bedtime ritual right before I turn off the lights 🙂
Do you have a favorite type of item to crochet? What makes it so enjoyable for you? And if you’re an advanced crocheter, any advice on how I can get from doilies to skirts and blouses? Much appreciated! 🙂
