Crochet - First Granny Squares
I started to learn to crochet just after Christmas and started a blanket - just stripe after stripe , after a few weeks I realised I was putting off carrying on with it as it had become monotonous.
After looking at other blogs I decided to try Granny Squares - It has taken me two weeks of trying and failing and trying and failing - I was just about to throw the whole lot through the window when it started to come together.
Here are my new squares and one part started for "The Blanket - Part Deux".
I hope they join together ok as they look a bit wobbly but thats a challenge for the future - I really look forward to my crochet now each night as I watch TV.
Anyway must go - I have to list some of our old things on ebay as I have blown the budget a bit this week !!!
We've bought an old cast iron fireplace for our bedroom and have to fetch that on Friday - I've bought some crochet patterns, workbox tin, old sewing box filled with sewing stuff and a new sewing box - none of which has been delivered yet.
I'm hoping they come tomorrow when Hubby is at work !!!
Will show you them when they arrive - but of course "I've had them for ages !!!"
