Mellow Yellow Monday 037: Granny squares

A lot of my friends are asking me what do I do on my days off. You see, I work in a call-center and I have a graveyard shift. Like vampires, we call-center agents who do the graveyard shifts, spend most of the day sleeping and up and about at night till the earling morning hours of the next day.

I pretty much did that daytime sleeping part when I was new at work. But as time went on, for some reason, I could not sleep that much anymore. I tend to wake up around noon when my son comes home from school. So we’re able to have lunch together. And when he goes to school, I am left at home with practically nothing to do. The choice is to — a) go back to sleep; b) watch television, or c) do a bit of crocheting. I chose letter “c”. It relaxes me and when I feel tired and sleepy, I just go back to bed.

Here are some granny squares I finished two weeks ago. I need more to make a pillow case:

I love the yellow yarn and red combo. They yellow stands out.

I wish I have a variety of designs. I need patterns and the ones I see on the Internet are downloadable for a fee. I was browsing through a lot of crafting sites and I wish I had crochet books, like below, ┬áthat I can hold and turn the pages back and forth. I don’t only copy the patterns. I study patterns them and improvise them. I love making extra changes here and there to make the crochet item more “me”, you know what I mean.
