I saw where Ghost was making squares from the 99 Granny Squares to Crochet leaflet. I knew I had the book but, do you think I could find it? Well...I finally did and made a couple of squares from it.
I used Red Heart Super Saver in Frosty Green for both squares.
The square on the left is # 62 from the leaflet. Turns out to be a Granny Square. I had to add a SC row to make this turn out to be 8".
The square on the right is # 67 from the leaflet. I had to add another DC row to make the 8" they are looking for.
I'm not sure why they picked *" squares to do. 7" or 9" seems to be more popular. I guess any square can be adapted.
I will look through the leaflet and see if there are more squares in there that are easy enough to adapt to 8". I'm sure I could find SOME out of the 99 patterns. lol A lot of them are not square but a lot of them are.
According to the weather it is suppose to be quite windy today. It will be a good day to get Steve to cut the grass. Also, to clean up some of the leaves out in front. Kristy and I started cleaning inside yesterday but, my package from CPC came yesterday and I ended up signing all of the papers that needed to be signed, so I can bring them with me on Monday morning. Kristy asked me if she could shampoo the carpets and I told her I wanted to use the Stanley Steemer gift certificate I got. All I have to do is to pick up the phone and make an appointment. A major ordeal! I should have had her do it and pretend she was me. UGH! Phoneaphobia! to the max! Not sure what it is about making calls but, I absolutely hate it. I do have to call soon or the gift certificate will expire, and i really don't want that to happen.
Have a great weekend!
Until next time...
