Projects :: 2014 Granny Square Project (Week 1)

The other day Alycia mentioned that she would be making a granny square a day in 2014 as part of an Instagram challenge. That reminded me of my granny square blanket that has been collecting dust in my craft room for quite some time now. I don't know what it is about that blanket, I mean, I have finished other blankets, why can't I finish that one? Ok, I do know what it is about is going to be really big and it's intimidating.

I have made some progress since I last mentioned it but it is nowhere near complete.
So, instead of just letting this pretty blanket sit around unfinished for a few more years I am going to chip away at it slowly with this project. I have decided to make at least one granny square a week for this blanket in 2014. If I am able to make a few some weeks that would be even better but my goal is at least one. I will share my squares here to keep me honest.

Here is my week one (Jan 1 - 5) square.
I can't wait to see this challenge progress! It is going to be so colourful!



  1. I'm doing a 'crochet a square a week' blanket as well, I've picked pinks, purples and blues with a bit of mint green and white as well. And I can't wait to see it all come together. I'm planning to make more that one a week if I can as well.
    I still have a work-in-progress blanket that needs finished, so that's in the basket too :)

  2. Ooh great project! :) It'll be so satisfying when it's all finished! x

  3. ooooo!! I love the color combos!!! Good luck!! xoxo

  4. I love granny squares. I have just finished a crochet seat cover! keep going they are very cute!!!

  5. Those are so fun! I Love the color's you chose! I am doing a square a day, for 6 Months, and then I will be done with one, and then a square a day for another 6 Months, until I am done with another! Hoping to be able to do it! I have never completed an afghan!

    1. That's awesome!! You will feel so good when you finish those!

  6. Nice colours! Aren't blogs such a great place to keep yourself accountable? I'm doing the Mood Blanket 2014 Challenge as well and I think my blog will go a long way in keeping me honest with my squares! Have fun!

  7. This is an awesome project. I'm not a crafter myself but I love the dedication.

  8. I love this idea. I need to do something like this to spur me on to finish all my unfinished projects!

  9. How many colors!!
    Your (Jan 1 - 5) first square is so cute, great job :)

  10. This is a great way to set up your goal! I started crocheting this exact same kind of project around four years ago now, and I only made about 3/4 of the squares, which are still sitting in my closet. Maybe the end is near? (The good kind of end, the finished end...)

  11. That is such a cool idea! I would love to learn to crochet. (I did once, very briefly but I've since forgotten!) Making a square a day seems like a great way to make crocheting a whole blanket less intimidating :)
