I would never in a million years consider myself a crocheter. I have so far always been totally inept at reading crochet instructions. dc tr ch dc ch tr. There are just too many “c”s and my eyesight starts to fail me. Even after a lesson with the queens of crochet, themselves, I still need more experience under my belt before I’ll feel good doing this.
But, I have, as a child, made a number of basic granny squares and feel pretty confident about that. And so, I happened upon Lucy’s instructions for a granny square blanket and broke out my box of scraps. Alexa at Urban Yarns can attest to this… she’s seen my big box of Superwash Worsted and Sport in sooo many colours. I’d been saving them to make colour cards (hello pipe dream) but felt it was finally time to do something with them.
The squares are so far quick to make and super portable. In fact, I made four squares on the morning of a Saturday wedding while waiting for the event to start… and then made a handful more in the hot sun while watching the Vancouver Symphony play at Deer Lake Park yesterday. I’m doing three rounds of crochet so far and then going to do the fourth round of all the squares in a unifying colour… and then sew them all together. Don’t know what it will be in the end… but it’s been mindless fun making these little boxes out of scrap yarn… making them them all look just the same.
