Yesterday after spending almost two hours fusing the pieces of my coat (and I'm not done yet!) I decided to sit for a while and try my hand at a Granny Square.
One of my goals is to become a better crocheter. I made this skirt which I love, but it took many months of work (I felt like Penelope, who knitted during the day and undid her work at night). Right now all I want is a Granny Square blanket, not the one from the 70's but the modern versions which are bright and cheerful.
I first followed the instructions from the book the Happy Hooker, but I wasn't getting it so I turned to You Tube and I got my Aha! moment and then I was able to follow the tutorial for the blanket I'm coveting
If you look at the sample above is not quite right, I messed up on the count, but I'm happy I figured it out and now I can start dreaming about the colors I want.
Happy New Year everyone!
