I love a good granny square afghan. Saw this rug from Kasthall in House Beautiful and was rather astounded. It is a printed granny square rug. Check it out here.
Here's what the website says about it....
"Karin is a wonderful printed rug of wool and linen. During her free
time, our chief designer Gunilla Lagerhem Ullberg crocheted a blanket
using leftover yarn from the Kasthall factory. The classic crocheted
squares have a nostalgic air, and new technology has made it possible to
transfer the pattern onto our woven rug Rita. Karin is one of our
personal favourites and is named after Gunilla’s grandmother, who also
loved to crochet. Karin is available in two beautiful and carefully
selected colour combinations."
If you are granny obsessed, you may find this interesting. Here's how. Love it.
BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.
This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.
The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.
