Granny Square Progress

I’ve been crocheting granny squares for a few weeks now, and I feel pretty confident about it. Crocheting, at least this one very uncomplicated pattern, is a great go-to craft for when I don’t want to have to think. I can make granny squares while watching TV, while sitting through Eliot’s taekwon do classes, while waiting in lines, etc. I don’t go anywhere these days without a ball of yarn and a crochet hook in my purse.

I think it’s cool to look at all my granny squares so far side-by-side. It’s pretty obvious which ones were my first tries and which ones I’ve completed more recently.

The rainbow squares are pretty wonky and uneven, the stitches not consistent in size, with noticeable errors in almost every square. The creme colored ones are a bit more regular, more even, tighter…and then by the time I was working on the light blue stack, I could actually stack them atop each other and line up the holes. Score!

Now I think I need to start weaving in all the ends and joining them, since I have a feeling that I’m going to be bored out of my skull if I wait until I finish all the squares to do that. I’m not sure yet what kind of pattern I’m going to join them in. I just know I want the finished blanket to be sort of randomly rainbow-y. Is rainbow-y a word? It is now. 🙂

  1. Rainbow-y is definitely a word 😉

    I loathe weaving in ends. I think that’s what is keeping me from attempting a large scale granny square project.
