We continue to enjoy "winter weather" (aka snowstorms) here; all the better for curling up with an old-timey craft. Granny squares have always been so appealing to me with their many and clashing color combinations, but I was intimidated by how complex, and how crocheted, they are. I finally bought myself a crochet hook, sat down with The Purl Bee's Granny Square tutorial, and gave it a go. So fun! And not nearly as hard as it looks. I've been going to town now with my rainbow relaxation yarn, and look forward to curling up with a new baby and Little Guy under the blankie.
But I've got still got 50 squares to go...and then seaming up. Some great links with instructions for joining squares can be found here and here, as well as general crocheted eye candy. And take a look at this gorgeous crocheted scarf; maybe there will be some remnants left over to try that little beauty!
