A New Obsession!

I'd been meaning to learn for a while... So one weekend I thought, why not now? I bought some hooks and grabbed some yarn I had lying around...

And learned how to crochet!

Now I officially have a new obsession, as of Friday, November 7, 2014. Thank you, Bella Coco of Youtube. I jumped right in with granny squares, learning how to chain and such along the way.

These looked reasonably average-sized.

My first attempt was less than square...

But my second attempt went much better!

The growing army

They're even somewhat close to being the same size!

My total is now at twenty-four, with another on the way. I guess I'm just going to connect them all into a giant wonky green blanket? For now though, I'm content to enjoy the rhythm of crocheting a simple granny square. :)


  1. I've been meaning to get back on the crochet hook. My mom sent me a book and hooks last year. I want to make a granny square throw. I will have to save that link. You are doing great. Can't wait to see how you decide to finish it. :)

  2. Fair play to you!! It looks great!!
    I want to learn to crochet too as I absolutely would love to make my own granny blanket... problem is, not enough hours in the day for stitching... let alone crochet!!!
    Maybe I will try during a loooong holiday :)

  3. Hi Katie

    Lovely crochet and stitching x

  4. Oh wow, good for you! I tried learning how to crochet early this year, but very quickly realized that my brain didn't work that way. I'm going to stick to knitting :D

  5. Beautiful job on the crochet. I have a tendency of crocheting too tight, which I'd usually why mine don't turn out very square. Practice makes perfect. :-)
