No it is not a contest to see how many Thorntons chocolates a granny can eat but a challenge to make the biggest crochet granny square we can. Interested? then click here to see Sucrette’s first post on this Crochet-along challenge. What harm can it do to take a peak?
How did I get tempted with this you ask? Well it was my blog friend Katrin who tempted me ;-D
There is also a group for this on Flickr so you can be tempted too, to have a go.
Here is my first picture. A basket of the yarn I’ll be using and how far I got yesterday evening with my square.
The yarn is from a weekly magazine publication which I subscribed to early last year. It was a magazine to show you how to crochet. Each week the magazine came with a ball of yarn and you were supposed to make a square in a particular pattern, the end result would be a patchwork style blanket with a sampler of the different stitches. Well I never quite got around to making it and stopped my subscription at the 30 something magazine. So I have all these balls which are the same weight and same type. So this is what I shall use up in this challenge. Once the yarn is done so will be my square. :))
Happy sewing or crocheting or knitting,
