So this ticks off number 13 in my 13 in 2013 challenge – crochet a granny square.
If I’m honest, this wasn’t exactly the outcome I expected.
Actually I’m surprised I kept this quiet for so long.
This is my granny square.
For reference, that’s our queen size bed that its resting on!
So I can add ‘can do the triple crochet stitch’ to my list of skills.
There were a few smaller granny squares that I did before starting a giant blanket sized one, I may share them at some point.
But for now I’m just going to sit back and feel impressed with myself.
Seriously I made this!
This is by far the biggest item I have made.
I feel accomplished.

That is VERY IMPRESSIVE!!!!! You should feel impressed with yourself! I can’t even imagine doing something like that. Any clue on how many hours in that project? One granny square is my goal, a small one.
A small one was my goal too!
It took 3 weeks in total, obviously not 24 hours a day, but I was shocked at how quick it was. 10 ply and 7mm hook made it big pretty quick.
I knitted a blanket which took 3 months and wasn’t that big.
Maybe this will motivate me to try. I can crochet a border, but have trouble seeing the individual stitches and counting them. Trying and practice would probably help as I have done teeny tiny purses and have figured it out before. lol People have told me that crochet is faster. On a pattern site the other day, every pattern that I picked out that I thought was so pretty and wanted to get was in crochet. Crochet is one of my unfinished projects.
That’s awesome! I really love the pattern too, I can’t believe it only took 3 weeks!
