Results - Granny Square

I'm feeling smug, smug as a bug in a...oh, that's snug...well anyway - my teapot *is* snug in it's new Granny Square Tea Cosy I made this week. Thanks to a crochet lesson at Brisbane Brown Owls, I was able to rustle this up in no time at all!

I think I'll call this the Greta Cosy, after my late grandmother who loved to knit and crochet. She was the last surviving grandparent in my family and was a mother to 5 rather mischievous kids (my Dad was a handful), a champion lawn bowler, collected teacups, and will always be remembered for seeing the best in people and accepting them for who they were, plus she made the best pasties I've ever had. Cup of tea Nana?


  1. WOW!!!! That is fantastic. I'm still struggling with the granny square, I've kinda got the hang of it, but my first square seems kinda holey, not sure what I've done wrong, I'll post it later on and see what other people think. I got a sore arm tho and numb fingers, did that happen to you or am I gripping to tight to my hook? Have a fab weekend you clever crafty gal! :-)

  2. That's so cute! I am still trying the granny squares - the one i did at the moment has ended up a pentagon.. i did 5 accidentally at the start and decided to go with it :-) Hope you have had a good weekend.
