Really Big Granny


 I have been like a kid in a lollie shop with all the inspiration around at the moment in blogland for Large Chunky Grannies.... 

 Meet Me At Mikes  - Mega Doily

Kootoyoo  - Granny Shrug

Sarah London  -  Crochet Rug

I have started a Granny Shrug....

Unfortunately I forgot that I had used the other balls of my green Patons 'Wilderness' for a tea cosie so I have been stopped in my tracks until my parcel from Spotlight arrives in the post.

While I am waiting for the mail I thought I would experiment with something larger as I loved the Granny Rug made by Dana Barnes that Sarah London  showed us....

So what do you think?  

Hubby had a long coil of rope in the garage and I thought why not!   I needed something to get an idea of the amount I would need if I was going to go Large.

I loved the Mega Doily that Pip   showed us.   NOW  I just need to find a supplier of cotton rope!

What do you think?   Would anyone buy one??

Happy Hooking to everyone following along with Kirsty's   Granny Shrug,  can't wait to see all the FO on  Flickr .

Now for all of you puppy followers....

I know, Too Cute !   :-)


  1. ooh wow you have been inspired! that big cotton rug doily was just divine, i would definitely love to have a go at doing that! how big did your rope square end up?

  2. your shrug is going to be lovely, I like the green! A shame to run out... I always oversupply myself with craft-goods but I always find a use for them in the end! Looking forward to seeing your progress...
    and by the way... you are a BAD PUPPY INFLUENCE! I am getting obsessed with puppies!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Love the green for the shrug. How many metres of rope and how big did it get?

  4. I love the large doily rug, amazing!....but not as cute as those pups!!:)

  5. beloveds head is very small... I cast on 86 stitches on 4mm needles... I don't know what ply the wool is but its thicker in some places... if you have dreads, Noro wool would make a fantastic looking tube, then you can poke your dreads out the back and not worry about the size! And then post a pic! I'm in love with Noro wool right now... I'm going to buy my mum some of the sock wool for her birthday... watch out, its highly addictive!

  6. Those pups are the cutest!
    I love the rope crocheted into a square. I love that it is something quite rough used in such a traditionally domestic manner (hope that makes sense.) Looking forward to seeing the shrug on.


Thanks for visiting my space and leaving a makes my day :-)
