Riding the granny train...

Confessions of a crocheter

As much as I crochet I have NEVER completed a granny square project, NEVER! And isn’t the granny square the epitome of crochet? It certainly was the thing in the 70’s.

I halfheartedly began a granny square project a while back but those few completed squares have long been discarded. I was trying to mix and match different squares and just lost interest.

With the resurgence of granny square popularity, (did they really ever go out of style?), I am jumping on the granny square bandwagon and am LOVING it! Rather than repeat the mistake of the past by trying too intricate a design, I am working my squares in basic granny stitches, (3 dc, ch 1). This will hopefully spur me on to finish thereby encouraging me to revisit the more intricate design combinations afterwards.
