Granny collar



Here is a glimpse of one of the pieces I made for the Vintage Fall Collection.
It is inspired by granny squares which hold a special place in my heart, although it would be more precise to say granny triangles.

I love this collar because it can spruce up a plain dress or a cardigan. The real thing for bohemian souls.
While on the topic of granny squares I am in the process of choosing colors for a baby boy (due to see the world next week) granny blanket but I am having doubts selecting the "real" granny for the purpose. Check out my grannies here.

Beautiful collar and beautiful model! :)
Waiting to see the colours you will choose for the blanket! BTW: there are a lot of baby boys arriving in these days! I just realized a "Welcome Baby" bow for my sister and a light-blue ring sling for a friend, and also cross-stitching bibs for another boy arriving in November!

That is absolutely adorable!

First time for me to visit your blog (I'll be back) and I see you call yourself a "struggling crocheter" ... but your work is beautiful!! Where's the struggle?

I do love collars and they are perfect r this time of year. I have some vintage ones, am itching to incorporate then into some clothing.
Happy Sunday

@ Hilary: Thanks for the lovely comment! When I was writing the 'About me" info years back, I had my grandma in mind who was a MASTER crocheter (one of these days I am going to write a post about her and show the masterpieces she created)and compared to her skills it did feel as I was struggling - hence the statement. I've changed it thanks to you and I believe my grandma would concur :)
