Erica's Granny Square Blanket :: WIP

Although Erica's crocheted Granny Square blanket is still a WIP (work-in-progress), I just had to share it with you -- I'm really loving it. Since this photo was taken, she's added another skein of Noro Taiyo and will likely do one more after that. I think she's up to 6 skeins now and is choosing them randomly. She's also planning to crochet a border around the entire blanket -- approximate finished size is expected to be 36" x 36".

My co-worker, Ann, taught Erica to crochet in early June (Ann's also the one who taught me to crochet) but Erica took to Granny squares a lot more quickly than I did. Stitch n' Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker proved to be a resource for her to get comfortable with hooking her Grannies. I'm still struggling with Granny squares, but I'm itching to try them again after the holidays -- it looks so fun.

oh this is gorgeous! It's going to be a sophisticated granny square blanket!

Lovely! Beautiful colours

What a beautiful colour explosion.

It's beautiful! It's "my" kind of granny square blanket with such beautiful colors.

I really taught myself to crochet only to make granny squares. That and to put nice borders on my knitted items!

Thats a lovely granny square.

This is lovely. My mom used to make granny square afghans by using up left overs. They were always colorful and happy.

That is turning out beautifully! Such pretty colors.
