As if I didn’t have enough projects started around the house, I’ve embarked on a HUGE new endeavor– Learning how to make granny squares and creating a granny square blanket. I know– seems a little lofty for a such a novice like myself, but I’m really excited about it. Right now I’m practicing and I have to admit– I LOVE it. I’m playing around with two different styles of squares that seem pretty easy (I’m still learning how to read patterns) and different color combos.

In the meantime, here are some fabulous granny square tutorials for you to check out and try!
