I am in love, passionately, madly, deeply in love with my Granny Squares. I have always loved crochet, my mum has always crocheted blankets for me but has never been able to teach me. I have always wanted to make one of those beautiful, colourful blankets and when I saw one with a How-to on Lucy's blog, Attic 24, (fabulous blog well worth a visit), full of scrummy colours, I was determined to have a go and teach myself. Lucy's patterns are an eye-opener, they are clear and concise and she has pictures to help you along and I have learnt from her blog. I am so, so pleased I've cracked it.
After many days of doing and un-doing and trying and trying, sweet success. Even flowers, they were so cute, I had to try. So, here are some examples of my hard work. I love them and have promised myself to do at least one a day. I have even been getting out of bed earlier to sneak one in - oh dear, it has hit me badly.
Teeny weeny flowers too, also from Lucy at Attic 24.
I adore the colours and it allows me to express myself in a way I do not with sewing.
