Practising the granny thing

I’ve been channelling my inner granny and getting to grips with the craft of crochet in my evenings recently. It’s also a bit of a rebellion against renovation – I’m over it!

Here are all my supplies that arrived by courier one day:

And attempt number one on the left (I got a little carried away with my treble stitches and the square ended up with a few more than four sides…) and attempt number two on the right which is much tidier! I’m up to round 3 here and have since added two more rounds to complete a 5 round granny square. One down, 15 to go (I’m planning on a cushion cover)…

It feels so good to have come a long way since my plea for help here. My MIL was surprised delighted at my desire to learn and helpfully showed me the basics one night and then I’ve been relying on Purl Bee and Meet Me at Mike’s since then.
