Scraptastic Acrylic Granny Square swap

This could be you. I can help you get the variety of granny squares you need to reach this high level of fashion.

I couldn’t wait. I have the bug. My first granny-square swap is still underway, but partners have been assigned so we can’t take new members. And even though there is more than a week to go, I have my squares completed and packaged up for mailing. So I started another swap. The Scraptastic Acrylic Granny Square swap to be exact (say it out loud. “scraptastic.” fun to say, huh?).

Swap-bot swap: Scraptastic Acrylic Granny Squares

Much like the previous swap, this aims to use up acrylic yarn in granny squares, and swap them around the globe. Based on some of the ideas of the previous swap members the number of squares that you send is increased to 3 squares to two partners (for a total of 6 sent and received). Six squares does sound like a lot, but the deadline is almost 6 weeks away. And I know you must have a few squares lying around. You can find more details (and sign up) on the swap-bot page.

If you are digging granny squares, join the Granny Along. Or just pop by for a visit. It is an inspirational hang out.

If you need some instructions for knitting a traditional granny square, check out these links:
Martha Stewart has an illustrated granny square tutorial (i think these are “reversible” granny squares).
Crochet Cabana has an excellent tutorial with photographs.

I also found two videos on youtube that would be a big help for beginners.
The first shows how to get started with a square, and the second shows a great way to do color changes.
