CROCHET: Granny Squares

How great are crochet granny squares for a portable craft?!? 

Before we left on our Hawaiian holiday a couple of weeks ago, I was having a last minute run-around, trying to decide what sort of crafty things to bring. As usual, I left it until the last minute to decide and then prepare my "craft of choice". 

I finally settled on variegated yarn and a crochet hook. I rewound a couple of the huge balls of yarn I'd previously bought at Lincraft, into manageable yarn cakes. Can I just say that I love, love, love my yarn winder (got it on eBay).

I crocheted the granny squares in the car.

At the hotel pool while the kids were splashing around.

On the bus while we toured around beautiful Oahu.

On Waikiki beach.

And with 10.5hr flights each way, I made alot of my squares on the plane.

I wonder what contrasting colour to use with these squares... or to be honest, even what I'll make with them...

Where are some of the more interesting places you've crocheted?


  1. I always take me epp on holidays..cant wait to see what you make with them, and the contrast colour you will use!

  2. HI!! Does anyone out there have a pattern for the granny square. I would like to have it to take along with me for waiting at the Dr office or other places!! I would truly appreciate if some one could share. I live in the USA, AND I so enjoy anything Anorina encluded !!!
