Granny pillow

 I finally finished my first granny square pillow! A big hurray for the new throw pillow! I planned it from so long... A couple weeks ago I showed some yarns from my stash. There was a few skeins of Hungarian yarns specially produced for blanket projects. It is 50% wool and 50% acrylic, enough soft and warm but also easily washable. I choosed light green, green, blue and brown for the circles and grey for the basic color. Although white based pillows are more cute, but our living room is kinda masculine with darker shades.

After I completed each 16 circles I started matching them to find the loveliest compostion of my grannies. So exciting :)

The hardest part was weave in every single ends. But does anyone enjoy this? 


I sewed an envelope back for the new pillow with blanket stitches: easy and fast way. 


Have I already mentioned that I love reading? Especially history books, travel journals, memoirs... 
 {The book I am reading is From Deportations to Re-Slovakization. Trilogy about the History of Hungarian Minority in Czechoslovakia between 1945-1948 by Katalin Vadkerty. A very serious history book... I am crying, feeling anger, sadness while reading it. Everybody should read it and don't let it happen again with any nations...}

Well this picture is idealistic a little bit, because when my husbands saw the finished pillow, he wanted it for himself, so I can enjoy my reading time on the granny pillow, when he doesn't need that, otherwise he even sleeps on it. 
Anyway I am happy with the result and there is no higher appreciation when he enjoys my crocheted items :)

Wish you happy reading and crafting time!

  2. Your granny pillow is very lovely. I've never done any granny projects, but they look so pretty and I want to try making a throw or bedspread. But perhaps I should start with a smaller project like a pillow.

    You have a nice blog.

  8. Oh that looks so beautiful and cozy! I never learned to crochet, but granny squares always make me wish I had. I guess it's never too late to teach an old dog new tricks, is it? You did a great job and should be so proud. So glad you shared over at tatertots & jello!
