Granny Squares


A few years ago I was messing around with a crochet hook and yarn, and I thought I'd try to make a blanket.  The pattern called for 88 granny squares, and after making one, I couldn't see myself making 87 more.  My admiration for my aunt and grandmother grew, as I thought of the giant blankets and intricate table runners they crocheted, sometimes from yarn the size of fine string.

I liked the way my one granny square looked, stopped at 2, and made this beanie.  That project was the start of many that I have made since then.  There's nothing better than getting into "the zone" and creating things from nothing.  Some people create music, food, art, movies and tv shows.  

I just make stuff from fabric and yarn.
