When I’m learning something new I want to try as many things as possible, all at once. This generally means a few projects tend to fall by the wayside and remain unfinished. Is it just me or are you like that too?
When I first picked up a crochet hook and some wool in the autumn of 2012 I started, as probably most people do, making granny squares. I found making them really addictive as they got me familiar with using the hook, how to work with the wool and I could make them fairly quickly.
Except then I was bought a book on how to make amigurumi, so I ditched the granny squares and started making cute little animals instead.
The piles of woolly little squares were consigned to a draw and there they have stayed – until now. I think it’s about time I have a go at joining them together.
I’m a bit nervous about doing this (as I’ve never done it before) which is another reason why I never did it at the time.
So now, more than a year on, I’m on the lookout for an easy and foolproof way to join my little squares together and make a nice little baby blanket. Any top tips anyone please?
Hopefully I will be able to give you an update with the full stitched-together blanket soon…
