Stash bustin’ it

I was surfing etsy.com as I like to do from time to time, as I am a member (I sell my original patterns there), and I LOVE to buy on etsy.  After all, a lot of them are making stuff with their hands, like I do.  I saw a really cool, colourful scarf made with….are you ready…..GRANNY SQUARES@#!%^#!  So, here is a photo at my attempt at the granny square stash bustin’ scarf:

Now I know how most knitters feel about crochet, as I once owned a yarn shop and got to hear about it.  (That was probably because there weren’t a lot of/any crocheters in the group.)  LET ME TELL YOU, these things work up very quickly!  I’m mostly holding two strands of somethin’ somethin’ together, using a size “K” hook.  I’m not going to enjoy sewing them together, I already know that.  If someone knows a pleasant way to do that, please tell me!  (I’m deluding myself now.)  Did I mention this project is kind of reversible?  I’m having a very good time making these squares, and I’m dreading running out of stash.  I guess at that point I’ll have to go out and check out the sale bins at the LYSs.  I’m not above it!

I DO have Rowan #44 in stock now, 5 remaining.  There was a run on them, and there were some upset customers out there.  All is back to normal now.  They make very good holiday gifts!  Also, don’t forget: the Rowan International Memberships make good gifts, too.  It’s the gift that gives all year long, for just $48.00!  On a sad note, I think I’m going to have to discontinue the Rowan Kits, as they aren’t getting much traffic, you know what I mean? 

I’m looking forward to some warmer weather tomorrow, as I need to complete and house wrap the right side of the caravan.  Wahoo!

    I knit & crochet. I learned to crochet first and like crochet as it is fast and there are so many creative things you can do it it like freeform crochet, although I usually add knit pieces to my freeform crochet. lol

    I love your granny squares, the colors are so pretty. As for your question, what about crocheting them together? You can find different ways to do that on the web by putting in a search. It is much more fun than sewing them together.
