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.
