Crochet? Granny Squares...

I got to thinking today about the two crocheted Granny Squares blankets I started 9 years ago when my daughter was expecting her first child. I had this idea that I'd finish that first blanket long before the little one was born. DD was convinced it would be a girl, as I had been when I was expecting her - the difference was that I was right, and she wasn't. So obviously once they knew it wasn't going to be a girl, this colorway got put on hold:

Wonder why?

So I began the first of 3 blankets using the Caron Simply Soft in the blue and white and beige colors:

And this is as far as I got on that blanket.

There's another blanket for another of her sons in the same colors. (May I just say how happy I am that apparently Caron doesn't do away with colors and has no dyelots! I'll be able to stock upon them since I'm now using the same colors in my Old Shale Ripple afghan)

Crochet isn't my first love, of course, but I do love Granny Squares. I just printed out this tutorial. And can I say that I just LOVE Attic24? Lucy has such a delightful way of putting colors together and coming up with such fun ideas.

I always leave her blog with a smile on my face and a commitment to give crochet another try.

So my next plan is to try hard to work on the blue and white granny afghan and master those aspects of crochet so I can move on to some of Lucy's other fun things to make. In brighter colors, I think.

Yes. Definitely.

those look like great projects! you definitely should try more of her patterns; if you can double crochet, then you're already ready!

The blue and white will be pretty! I was a failure at crocheting granny squares in 4th grade when a friend tried to teach me. I'm still scarred. Michael also has an aversion to granny squares (I think there may have been something awful crocheted for him when he was little), so I haven't felt the urge to try again.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
