When most of us learn to crochet, we start out with a straight crochet and make a potholder or a dishcloth, but soon we move on to the ubiquitous granny square that has been used to make 857,634,999,234,741,337 afghans to date. If you don’t have one or two of your own, well – how did you escape?  Granny square afghans usually are made when a crocheting relative has enough partials skeins from their blouses, dresses and skirts to combine – with utter disregard for color harmony – into one crocheted rectangle big enough to cover your legs – no matter that with its huge holes it will not keep you warm. It’s the thought that counts.  However, at anuenue, we have someone who realized the granny square has other applications and made a bodice that originates in that design. Contrary to traditional granny square design, it is one color and that gives it a cohesion the traditional pattern usually lacks. Still with the folk roots of the granny square and the flowing gauze skirt, this is the perfect boho dress.

To keep the boho-hippie chic feeling going I worse the lace up wedge sandals from J’s. I nearly went nuts tinting those toes though – I would get them an exact match using the Advanced/UI show color under cursor option and then shift ever so slightly and thanks to lighting and shadows have them look terribly off. If they matched looking from the right they were too dark on the left and so on.  I thought about turning off local lights – which is what was causing the problem – but they are so important to lighting photos for me that I got “close enough” and decided to just shoot.

With such a feminine folk dress, I loved the Autumn hair style from Truth with its handy-dandy color change flower headband. The lovely Dark Mouse jewelry is just casual and handcrafted enough to be a perfect match.
