Count Me In On the Contest!

I love the idea of this squares contest! It was just the motivation I needed to get back to making squares. Here are my first 3, all for Rebuilding Greensburg and all made since Sunday:

Given the conversation going on over at the LJ community, I just want to note that the top 2 were made with Plymouth Encore. I think the varigated colorway has been discontinued. It's a nice yarn to work with. I love crocheting this square, especially since 6 rounds come out a perfect 8". I hope to get quite a few more done by July 16th.

While I am posting, I thought I would include a picture of a pair of baby socks I made this month. I hope to get a few more pairs made, and then they will be donated to Afghans for Afghans in time for the next collection date (undecided at this point).

I have to tell you, I am SO envious of your squares. For some reason, I was born without the ability to do granny style squares. It's a curse. My squares end up with blobs of stitches all over the place and it's just plain awful :)

Cute pair of socks too.

You rock!

Those are so cute! Those are granny squares? Amazing.

I'm going to have to try out an actual "square" square one of these days.... all mine end up lop-sided.

Thank you again for your kind comments! These aren't traditional granny squares, but any square that is crocheted from the center out is considered a granny square. I just really enjoy making this particular square.

Well, if it was worked in the round then it's beyond me :)
