I can crochet a granny square!

I finally did it, I worked out how to crochet a granny square! I woke up Sunday morning not knowing how to do it, looked at a few blogs including Little Tin Bird and here and hey presto I can do it. I have to say I felt kind of smug doing the first one and want to make them all day long (job gets in the way of that idea). So now I have a truly portable blanket project and made part of one at work at lunchtime today and started another one. I've decided to edge them all in blue so that it looks uniform when sewing them all together. I just love looking at other peoples creations and the colours they use. It was Jo at through the keyhole who inspired me to give it a go. I love the colours Jo has chosen for her second blanket. I've chosen a sort of Cath Kidston colour range, including red because by the time I finish it it will be Christmas! Not sure I like acrylic but I got the wool so cheap its worth having a go for the first attempt. Amanda x

Well done. It's great when you finally master it, and it just gets easier and easier the more you do. I like the colours you've chosen. Thanks for the link.

This is something I have to learn. And I will!

thanks Jo. I've decided to border them all in cream, it goes with everything. I made 4 last night and one at lunchtime today. Its brilliant!

Yeah, welcome to the Club. I'm doing granny square cowls like mad at the moment for Chrissie presents. Only blogged one so far, but will put the others up when they are finished.

It gets very addictive!!
