I know that being able to create and write books is a huge privilege. It really is a dream come true. You have and idea, you jot down some potential projects and then….then the reality hits you, it’s kind of a responsibility. Oh my, will I be able to think of enough ideas? It is then, in the middle of the night…the wee small hours that the projects come to you. When I was putting together a list of project for Granny Square Weekend, you might be surprised to know that some projects actually didn’t make the final cut. We had too many.

With this book I wanted to make, recreate and write down all those staple patterns I use on a regular basis. This is like exposing my secret stash of go-to makes which I use regularly for gifts and ‘thank-you’ pressies.

Favourite Projects

I’m going to be honest; I have three versions of the Boho bag which is on the front cover. These get used constantly in the summer. I have about 4 version of the sunglasses case; (mostly because I have a small sunglasses obsession). The is a different coloured version of the headband in every outdoor coat I own.

If you follow this blog regularly you will know how many cowl scarves I own and wear regularly. You will also know that I have long championed the concept of the ‘lazy-edged’ blanket.

Perhaps I have revealed too much, but this book really is like opening up the crochet part of my head and emptying out all my crafty wisdom. If you love patterns I think you will be pleased, but don’t just flip through to the instructions. One of the joys of working with my glorious editor, Wendy is that she allows my voice to come through in the text. There are lots of my top tips and tricks embedded in the chapters.

I really do hope you like this book. I so love the way it looks and the fact I have been able to capture all my favourite projects for you.
