'Grandma Squares'

I've been working on a design for a bag using crochet granny squares with odd balls of yarn - alot of chunky wool that I find too difficult to knit with. Just completed the first half, hope to share the results when it's done. 


Harris had a go at a few stitches (slightly larger, but very neat, as you can see), he did very well for his first go. Maybe I'll get him to crochet the other half!

Just about settled into my new studio space. And I'm pretty pleased with it, especially the curtains, made from vintage embroidered tray cloths and napkins. Here's a peek....
