My First Crochet Project - Granny Square Cushion

Firstly, I've only gone and done a 5km run this morning!!!  It's a free organised thing called Park Run, which is held at the park right near my flat.  I'm doing the Race for Life in two weeks (got talked into doing it with a group of girls from work), and had yet to start training, so just went for it!  Can't believe I did it - I LOATHE running!!  I admit that I walked quite a bit of it - it was just too painful!  But at least I did it.  (It was most out of character for me... I'm more of an eater than an exerciser!!)

Well, I thought I would share with you my first ever crochet project.  It is a granny square cushion that I made a couple of years ago I think.

I made it with 100% cotton.  It actually looks better and less wonky in real life!

It was on my bed, but I redecorated the bedroom last November and it didn't match anymore, so it's been in a bag in the airing cupboard, waiting until one day when I live in somewhere with more rooms than my one bedroom flat - where there might be a home for it!  Unfortunately it looks as though the white cotton has gone a bit yellowed being in there :o(  Maybe if I wash it, it will look whiter.

Again, it looks better in real life!

Right - better get ready - I'm off to my sister-in-law's sister's birthday BBQ!  Time to eat and drink lots to make up for that awful shock to my system doing that run this morning!!  ;o)

Have a lovely day!

  2. Well done on the running and crochet front! Like you, I loathe running, unlike you, I would never attempt this! So a HUGE well done!
    For your first crochet project this was a big one and it's beautiful. I have realised that my crochet cushion goes with none of my rooms too so I think this one might have to be my garden cushion!
    Hope you have a lovely evening.

  3. Hi Maria! Just thought I would send you the link to where I got my yarn from! I actually bought most of it from ebay from here - I don't have much experience in buying yarn as this is my very first project but I am really pleased with colours and feels nice too!! Have fun with your projects :) xxx

  4. Hi Jenny,
