There were alot of things I was excited about with getting into the new house. Not living out of boxes being the biggest I think. However, I was also anxious to get my crafting supplies back so that I can craft again. I was itching so bad that at Thanksgiving I snuck down to my inlaw basement where my supplies were living and pulled out my crochet hooks and some yarn to start a new project. I figured crochet is pretty contained – a skien of yarn and a hook. Can’t get much simpler than that.

To this point I’ve really only done one hat, a scarf, and about 6 inches of a blanket (I didn’t buy enough yarn!) so I consider myself a very novice crocheter. I thought a granny square quilt would be a good way to hone my skills and working on being consistent with my stitches and what not. I’m having so much fun but wow, this is going to take a long time to get done:) I can average a square a night and figure I need at least 30 squares for a child sized blanket and more for an adult sized blanket (42 maybe? 6 squares wide and 7 tall..). To date I have 20 squares done so we’ll see how that goes. Honestly, I’m going until I run out of yarn (and i have lots of yarn:))

I found the pattern thru Hopscotch Lane but it was originally written up on Annie’s Place

Really easy to follow and after a while kind of mindless which is nice.


I have two more projects on the horizon that I want to get to but refuse to let myself start them until I finish this one so I have motivation to keep going. Again, we’ll see how that goes.

Any one doing an interesting crochet project?
