Granny What Now?

9 Feb

Did you know that there’s a difference between a Granny Triangle and a Granny Half-Square?

You did? Smarty Pants.  =)

For the rest of you, check this out:

 

Granny Half Square

Granny Half Squares are flat on the bottom and involve adding an extra dc into the first and last “granny group” of each row.  For a refresher course, check out my ridiculously awesome tutorial!

 

Granny Triangles, on the other hand, are worked without turning the piece, and have three distinct roundy edges (and yes, that’s the scientific term):

 

Granny Triangle

For an awesome Granny Triangle tutorial, check out Carina’s craft blog – she’s got pictures and everything!

Nina is extremely smart, as you may know, and was able to correctly identify the Granny Triangle on her first attempt!

 

Smartest. Kitten. Ever.

AND… in case you were hoping for a bit more humor in today’s post, I just want you all to know that WordPress recommended I tag Cloris Leachman, the United States, and Constellation Maps in this post.  Then, when I typed those three things, it updated my recommended tags to include Go Daddy and a related article about a Grannie attacking thug bikers (which I’ve included below).  WordPress ROCKS.

    I think your post is just fine. It also answers a question I’ve had for a while. The teenage girl next store evidently knows you because her bikini looks like its made from three of your GSs! Except they’ve shrunk.
    It gives my human eyestrain.

    Haha. Too funny that it suggested that Granny article! That’s been all over the news here–was even in the free morning paper today. In case you’d like to watch the whole amazing video: http://www.metro.co.uk/granny
