After spending hours reading about it on the Internet, I needed a distraction and dug out my yarn basket for some crochet therapy. I started the larger granny squares about 3.5 years ago when I saw an amazing cream granny square bed sized blanket in some french magazine. I got to about 10 before it got tossed into my yarn basket.
This infamous blanket got me excited about tackling it again so I started two squares using Yvestown's tutorial. Because it's so much smaller than my previous ones, it's really fun to do.
I used Lucy's tutorial to join the square as you go which is makes this so much more enjoyable!
That little piece of grey striped linen fabric was my little son's project today. I made little dots with the fabric marking pen and he sewed running stitches and attached buttons using a real grown up needle for the first time. He was totally loved using real needles and sewing like mommy! Then I noticed the running stitches he made all over our bed that he neglected to show me :)
