Granny square scarf in pink

I crocheted my first granny square (mormorsruta) in November last year, this is what I wrote back then:
Vi tv? looks good together right

I think it is to many holes in it to be a scarf? But it was fun to make it, I have lots of tiny balls of yarn that I could use? Maybe I’ll just try it anyway.

So from time to time I’ve crocheted a granny square or two, and this autumn all the squares finally was sewn together! Hurry, I really enjoy finishing stuff.

Here is me, Smilla and the granny square scarf out on a test tour:

Granny square scarf for me

I’ve crocheted a tiny border around the edge and I’m in love with the result. Isn’t it pretty? Not at all what I envisioned and had seen in my mind, but I still like it a lot. I just can’t imagine ever ever making something bigger than this in crocheted squares. Just sewing all the pieces together took for ever!

And my favorite picture of the cat right now:

Sniffa

Smilla is so beautiful, but because she is also very fuzzy and light, it’s hard to get a good photo of her. But outside in natural light she looks her best! She is the best, maybe I should marry her?

Maria och början på en sjalAfter the cat and photo walk we went inside to knit and crochet some. Maria is making a beautiful scarf, see picture (that she’s cast on for at least five times now). I’m doing multiple projects, so many that I don’t know what to do when I have time really. What was I going to do today? Hmmm… I’ll just have to stop blogging for a start. But, I wanted to tell you that today is special.

I’ve been engaged to my dude for two freaking years today. Gee, what is happening? It feels strange to spend the day alone, to celebrate this alone, but I really appreciate that somebody else is sharing his bed right now. I prefer my cozy bed to the edge of a cliff, anytime, even though they have pretty great views all around!

Calendar girl

And who am I to complain? I get great stuff in the mail all the time, I’m going to sell my stuff at two Christmas fairs and the sun is shining today (no rain!!!). I entered the 2007 calendar contest for Knitty, and guess what? I’m one of the winners! Can’t show the picture yet, but I can reveal that it is very colorful, very Swedish and you can almost see my bum on the pic! Ick! Check out last years calendar to see some beautiful knitting images. Can’t wait to see this for real!

flattr this!

    I LOVE your scarf. I have done a whole small blanket in them…for my lap and I love it…it’s so cosy and warm. My cat (who I had to leave in Australia) used to LOVE to snuggle on it. She thought it was extra cosy and warm too. Congratulations on being picked for the knitting calendar! AWESOME! And congratulations on 2 years engagement…so when’s the big day?

    Coolness … the scarf and the beautiful autumn pics! The picture of the cat is really catching my breath! How focused her eyes are … I wonder what she’s studying so concentrated?

  14. Laura says:

    The scarf is so pretty! And I just adore that photo of your kitty! :)

    Congratulations on winning the Knitty calendar contest – your knitting always looks so good in the photos, I’m not surprised you won.
    Congratulations on the 2-year anniversary, too – I think you’re much warmer (& safer!) on your own bed than on that cliff! (I would be afraid to fall asleep on a ledge like that – I’m too restless a sleeper :)

    Thank you for the nice comment.

  16. Anette says:

  19. Kathleen says:

  21. suzy says:

    I love your scarf!!! I can’t get the hang of crochet, but you have inspired me to try again.
    And congratulations about the Knitty calendar!!!

  22. Nice scarf and photos!!

  23. Amy says:

    I saw you on WhipUp and realized I haven’t been to your site in ages. I’m sure you’ve been busy from the looks of these front page posts. WOW – this scarf is absolutely wonderful. It makes me want to learn to crochet. I live in Texas where we rarely “need” scarves but I think I might have to make an exception for this! Really great — I love the colors too.

  24. Regina says:

    Lovely scarf! The colors are so yummy!

  25. Alex says:

    Love, love, love your scarf!
    Sweet photos!

  26. Rupert says:

    The scarf is just great – bizarre (because it’s made from granny squares) and hilarious (because it’s made from granny squares). And it’s cute as a button.

    Hey, great photos – and especially the photo layout.

  27. sUsAn says:

    Love love love you granny square scarf!!! The colors are wonderful and the construction is so happy!

  28. Nina says:

    Lovely scarf! I have some granny squares I crocheted ages ago with a blanket on my mind. I’ve given up the original plan, and was looking for an inspiration for a scarf. Got it here, thank you!

  29. Scarf says:

    Thanks so much for the post. I usually wear my scarf like other way but I am just starting my scarf collection, I having a whopping collection of one.
    Thanks
