The humble granny square is one of the things that first drew me to crochet and made me want to learn, yet in all my years of crocheting I hadn’t actually made anything with granny squares. Part of the reason for this is that blankets (even small ones) scare me, it’s such a huge, time consuming commitment. I always thought “what if I stuff it up? What if the colours aren’t quite how I imagined them? All that work and love for nothing”. My little boy is due in only 3 months so I thought that this would be the perfect time to get over my commitment phobia, after all once he is here I won’t have the time to do such a project for quite some time.
So here it is! My first official granny square blanket, it’s small but I did it!
