First Attempts at Crocheting

I'm realizing that I like to jump head first into big new projects and tend to not sit long on the simple, basic steps. This might come back to get me in the end!!!  BUT regardless, I have made a stab at crocheting! I decided last Sunday that I was going to give it a try and wanted to make a blanket for my son.  Poor guy is 8 and is already almost as tall as his mom.  Most of his soft cool super hero blankets are getting to small for him so I thought he needed a new blanket.  I went online and found some really helpful videos on how to make a very basic granny square blanket and just hit the ground running.

This is where I am so far.  I think its about 2 foot across.  I've been working at it at home while we are watching our evening shows.  I like that its the same thing over and over again so I don't have to look at a pattern and can move pretty quickly through it.  I've got plans for more blankets and such so we'll see what happens!!!


  1. Good for you! I love crocheting (Ive never tried knitting tho) That blanket looks great so far, I've made a couple of granny square blankets, I love how easy they are! :)

  2. It looks so good!!! I'm very impressed! So how does it work? Do you crochet rows or something else? How big will it be when you are finished?
