I know it is odd to be starting a second crochet project now, when I haven't finished the first, but my ripple blanket has become something of a gargantuan creation. It requires a small team of removalists and several traffic diversions to be in place in order to transport it from room to room.
Crochet project number two is small and portable, and can be taken with me to school pick-up, appointments etc...anywhere I think I might have a few minutes to wait. So far it consists of Granny Squares in just four delicious colours...
I have never made Granny Squares before, so I had to find a pattern that was very easy to understand. The first place I looked was Lucy's Attic 24 and I wasn't disappointed. Check out Lucy's beautiful Summer Garden Granny Squares here. Now please don't rate the quality of Lucy's pattern using the neatness of my Granny Squares as a gauge. My first Granny Squares are a little...random....in appearance. They are much fiddlier than ripples (IMO) and I felt like I had four thumbs while I was making them. I am sure I'll get the hang of them eventually ;-).
