Wheelie Wednesday - Granny Square Scarf

Hi everyone - it's me, Francesca!
Mom has been crocheting small granny squares like crazy and she's having lots of fun with this new challenging project of hers!  It was starting to get to be mini-granny square overload here so once again, she asked You Tube for help and they showed her how to crochet all of her squares together!
So who gets the pretty new scarf, mom?
I think it looks best on me!
And Maggie thinks that because she's the oldest, she should get it!
I'm wearing the scarf on one side and we flipped the scarf on the other side for Maggie so you can see how it's joined.  Mom says the granny squares were easy to put together because all you have to do is follow the holes already provided!

Mom says the scarf fits her quite nicely too and it's very warm - too warm for August!
We're thinking that it's going to become a community scarf and it's going to be shared unless mom keeps on crocheting more and more mini-grannies!

See you all next Wednesday!

Friends forever,
Francesca

A wonderful crochet scarf! Tell your Mom to keep crocheting - she'll have a blanket done in no time! Murray loves his Grandma's crochet blankets - we have a collection here of them - all different colours for different chairs / beds!

take care

Your Mom is getting good at that crochet stuff. Don't let her tell our Mom about it. She already has all these things like knitting, sewing, cross stitch and reading. They all take up valuable dog time when she could be tossing the frisbee or doing something useful like baking dog biscuits.

It's beautiful!!! YouTube sure comes in handy for things. Pretty soon your mommy could put her own tutorial on there using you as models :)

O those granny squares are really pretty. I like the colors.... but Maggie you don't look too happy wrapped around you neck! Probably because you hate being HOT! Sending cool vibes.

We just imagine a nice granny path all the way from your home to ours, this winter. Wouldn't that be nice? Follow the granny square road ....
