Square Dance

So, guess what I learned how to do today? Crochet granny squares! I'm sure most of you have been way on top of this new trend - awesome granny square afghans have been showing up everywhere and the selection of colors, textures, and patterns (hexes, puffy stitches) have made them much more attractive and irresistible, at least to me. A great tutorial is at The Purl Bee, but I needed a little extra help than what it could provide.

After a Skype session with my friend Carrie, who is a pretty amazing genius of both color and crochet, I was brave enough to make my first granny square out of some worsted-weight handspun. Seems that I'm a really tight crocheter and I had to use a size K hook for it - but it turned out well!
