I proudly present my 1st ever granny square...
*takes a little bow as very pleased with myself, as not only is this the 1st crochet square, but all so the first time I have ever successfully followed a wooly pattern and ended with exactly what I wanted to make*
The urge to learn the granny square hit me quite hard after a week of Kirstie's Homemade Home repeats, what can only be described as granny square flickr porn and seeing the granny square blanket on FOTC many many times. The final push was an its-too-hot-to-knit wool sale which actually had some of my perfect colours.
In my wardrobe, I seem to be swapping black and white for grey and cream a lot right now, but a muted green has always been a favourite.
With my armfuls of cheap lush yarn I have decided to make my own blanket and knowing it takes a lot of squares, I started thinking a granny a day was a good plan.
Above is friday...
...Saturday evening (a couple extra to get it going) ...
...and Monday (!?! I may had gotten a little carried away)
Maybe not the most successful -a-day project but a good start to blanket.
27 down... 73+ to go!
