Me loves the granny square!

Recently I have become very, very, VERY obessed with granny squares and hexagons! So much so that my hands have not seen a pair of knitting needles in about two weeks. After years of trying super hard to understand how the whole granny square business was all about, I finally sat down and followed directions from Attic 24. She is brillant. She MAKES you want to crochet items for your entire home.

So that is what I have set out to do. My first project is a giant granny square blanket for Jay. I used the scraps of our Playful Stripes Cardigan to see if I could crochet squares - and I can! This whole test project has now turned into an obession to crochet a blanket to fit Jay's single sized bed. I am using about 20 different colours, if not more of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino on a 3.25mm Clover hook.










OMG - this is something that I think she will love forever!
