Crochet Love

I learned how to crochet granny-squares this summer, and made a blanket as a gift for my sister's graduation from WSU.  I am still working on making it a bit bigger to give to her when she is home around Thanksgiving time, and then will add a simple colored border.

For any of you who are up for the small challenge, learning to crochet granny-squares is easy-peasy! Just You Tube "learn to crochet granny square" and you'll get all sorts of videos showing you exactly what to do.  This flickr site also has some step-by-step photos.

I love the pops of color and think crocheting is just beautiful! Enjoy these project photos for some inspiration!


  1. Thanks for commenting on my post and congratulations on your news! That's really exciting and I hope it brings many positive experiences into your life. :)

  2. I love your afghan so much. I've been making solid granny squares for scarf. In all honesty though, I started it in February and it still isn't finished. I took a summer break so I need to get back on it.

    I think my next project is totally going to be a afghan, and yours is my favorite I've seen. Love the colors and the white border. You've inspired me.

    And thanks for joining the Dare to DIY blog parties. SHould be a ball!

  3. Krystle & Kim- Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the well wishes and thoughts about the afghan! Have a great rest of your week!
