Gale Zucker and Her Fabulous Granny Square Afghan

Gale Zucker is a knitter, professional photographer and teaches classes on photographing your knitting.  I like to check in with her blog, she shoots sheep shots, on a regular basis because there is always something interesting going on over there and, of course, the photography is first rate.    Recently, she has been blogging about a big project she undertook, known as The Big Ass Granny Afghan.  It's now done and the result is fabulous!  Here's just one of her great photos which she kindly gave me permission to show:

Unfortunately for me this is done in crochet, a craft I have yet to master, and so I won't doing one of these any time soon, but I Pinned this picture just because I like to look at it!

A while back I blogged about  how much I  enjoyed her first book Shear Spirit   in which Gale traveled around the country interviewing sheep ranch owners from New Mexico to Maine who were living their dream, and she and Joan Tapper now have a new book called Craft Activism which is a tribute to the growing craft movement in all its shapes and forms:


Perhaps there's a knitting version of that Granny Square afghan out there somewhere....

  1. Thanks for the shout out Carol! You need to try crochet--this project is dead easy. Believe me, my crochet skills are not all that advanced. I just love how quickly a blanket like this grows. Instant gratification!
