Granny squares have fascinated and delighted crocheters for as long as I can remember.
During the 70's craft magazines were filled with granny square projects.
There was no shortage of ideas, either in fashion or decor.
At the time, the most popular yarn weight used was worsted and for the most part, acrylics.
What appealed to me about this design was the simplicity of the pattern.
You can virtually adapt this design to suit your every whim.
Personally, I like to keep it simple and let the yarn do the work.
This is where marls, tweed and multicoloured yarns are so good.
Whatever you pick, this design is fast, fun and fantastic.

Colour is one of those topics that is intensely personal.
As part of my job,I had the good luck and good fortune to take part in the Colour Marketing Group conferences.
The experience was one of my favourite perks as I got to dabble and help forecast colour, and more importantly, have fun doing it.
Each year there was a consumer colour story inspired by world events, cultural interest and the arts.
The colours in future products you would see and buy would have been influenced by key people within every industry.
