Yesterday it was Granny Squares Day. For those of you who don’t know, a granny square is a crochet square and it’s often the first thing you learn how to do. Generally the idea is to make lots of squares and sew them together to make a blanket. I’m not a fan of doing this simply because I don’t like sewing them together. I do however enjoy crocheting the squares. The picture above is a screen shot of my Instagram feed of the nine different squares I made especially for granny square day. They are not perfect and a I didn’t have time to block them to make them neat and flat, but I had fun making them and using up some scraps of wool.
We went to a farm earlier this week and I’ve already posted about it but it has certainly been a highlight of our Summer so far. We enjoyed it so much we are going back again next week. We hope it will be a little cooler, but not raining. Although the kids don’t mind the rain, my wheelchair is not a fan.
Anyway, I dug out a couple more photos for you. Here is a cute goat asking for some more food, and two of my kids feeding the goats.
With such a busy week last week I’m surprised I managed to finish my granny squares in time. But I also managed to finish reading a book (or rather listening to one) and I’m halfway through another. My biggest achievement of the week before was managing to watch the entire second series of The Umbrella Academy. Now, I just can’t wait for the next series. In fact I’m waiting to get the chance to watch the first series with Graham as he’s not seen any of it yet. Have you seen The Umbrella Academy?
The granny squares are lovely. They look pretty good to me.
I still have the 2nd series of The Umbrella Academy to watch x

ohh watch it, I think it’s better than the first. I’m excited that Graham has decided to watch it with me, we watched the first episode last night. he asked me a million questions, but I’m not saying anything. 🙂
I love all the different patterns you’ve crocheted. I crocheted squares for a blanket for my O’Level needlework exam but I’ve forgotten how to do it now!

I had a booklet with patterns for 100 granny squares. I could have made them into a blanket but I just wanted to challenge myself to make them different.
I like granny squares – reminds me of my childhood. I love seeing photos of baby goats – they make me laugh! #MMBC
I remember granny squares from my childhood too, in fact I have a little blanket that my granny made 🙂 goats are adorable, we had fun taking some for a walk last year.
Love the granny squares… and the goats are cute! Glad you had a nice outing. #MMBC
Thank you Lisa, we do love goats, we are going back to see them again.
I had a few blankets my grandmother made me using granny squares; I never did learn to make them myself. Goats are always good for a laugh when we visit our local farms. They have so much energy!

Those granny squares look fab. Love them. We are enjoying Umberella Academy 2. The goats are cute xx
I love how your granny squares are all different. I don’t blame you for not wanting to sew them together to make a blanket, that sounds like hard work!
How lovely to hear that you had such a good visit to the farm. I hope you get good weather for your next visit too.
