About Me

My photo
Fayette Co, KY, United States
I am a country girl stuck in the city, for the time-being. I enjoy the country way of life, and practice that in my home as best I can by canning and preserving foods, cooking and baking from scratch, crocheting, living vicariously thru the many blogs I follow about country life. I enjoy learning about raising livestock, and glean from my past employment and personal experiences of working with animals to fuel some of my postings. I have 5 cats, who keep my life interesting. And I am also an amateur poet. Thanks for stopping by and checking out this Farmer-gal who is caught in town, for now.

Now that's what I call a Granny Square

I'm working on an afghan for my niece's second baby girl who is due in December. I was working on an individual Granny Square afghan for her, but that kind of went by the way-side. So I decided to do something a little easier, and just make the afghan one big Granny Square. Below is a photo - it's about 12" square right now, and I'll probably make it 36" square - so a I'm a third finished, and want to get it finished and to my niece before I move at the end of September. Anyway - wanted to share this with you. I really like the multi-color of the yarn, and it is kinda girlie - so will fit my great-niece well, I hope.

I hope you all enjoy your Labor Day, when I hope you're free from labor.
Take care Ya'll - from Fayette Co KY.

That is so sweet and pretty! I think the BIG square is a great idea!

What beautiful, vibrant colours. I'm sure the blanket will be lovely when it's complete.

Congratulations on your upcoming move to the country--I can't wait to see some pictures of your new cabin!

Hi Kathy,

Those of us who can crochet are so lucky. So many folks are bored to tears during the winter months when they can't get out. I keep my crochet thread and needles in my bag that goes with me everywhere I go. I am one of those folks who has to be doing something every minute.I crochet.Love your varigated Granny Square.
