Granny Square Explorations - Acrylic

I am inspired to craft again since CHA! Last week I got out my crochet hooks and started crocheting floral granny squares from this pattern at Lion Brand HERE.

First I played with Red Heart Acrylic because I wanted a stack of pretty scrubbers and I have a lot of that scratchy yarn to use up. They are super bright.

I dug up these old ones I made 3 years ago with Caron Simply Soft. That yarn is more like sport weight than worsted so these are much smaller than the Red Heart Acrylic ones. I'm pretty sure I made a few scarves in some nice colorways as gifts one Christmas. I don't always photograph the stuff I make at the holidays:

Tomorrow I'll share the ones I stitched up with some new wool yarn. They are bright too, but oh so nice in a natural fiber!

I started crocheting granny squares too, when I wanted to get rid of some Red Heart. I ended up making a little granny square garland.

Yours look lovely!

Oh nice, Susie! Love the colours, but wow they damn near burned off my retinas! :-D

I know, Carina! It's like 1980's neon all over again. I got some nice wool and made some toned down ones I shared in a newer post today.
