I tried my first crochet "granny square" last night. I am in love. I ADORE making these nifty little squares. There are a ba-zillion color combinations and they all look so cute when they are done. I can't wait to make a quilt.
Now for some pics. Here is project #10 for the RVA crafts class. It's a neat-o little granny square clutch. I am so very pleased with the result and will be making many, many more of these.
the inside is lined with felt.
this is the back, I rotated the brown and yellow.
For yarn, I used Lion Brand wool-ease, a 6mm hook and two vintage buttons in my stash. The color combo is totally 70's inspired.
The thing I love about crochet is how you can do it while doing everything else: chase babies, watch tv, make dinner...you get the idea. This is very helpful with a 9 month old crawling around. Or should I say toddling. She took her first steps yesterday. My baby is getting so big!!
