Big shout out and THANK YOU to Red Heart Yarns for sponsoring Design Wars. Anne Geddes Baby yarn was a treat to work with!


I’ve been dying to design something around the infamous granny square. They are so versatile and I can just go crazy over all the color combinations. I had a few ideas in mind at first for this round but it just was NOT coming together for me. I really was starting to panic! Two rounds ago, when I made the Sarah Slouch, I had tried an adult pair of granny square leg warmers…and it was not a pretty sight! The yarn with wool was just too thick and it didn’t look right. So I shelved that idea for another day and for another kind of yarn. Thankfully in my panic state I remembered that idea and thought it should definitely work with this thinner/lighter weight yarn! Thank God it did! Here is my Not Your Granny’s Leggings.  { Thank you to my fabulous model Miss Aubrie and my amazing photographer & friend at Photography by Amy }
