CAL anyone???Wednesday, April 14, 2010
I am getting ready to take on a very interesting home decor crochet project that involves several large granny squares. Amazingly enough, I have never done a granny square in my life, and I am a little scared. :)
I definitely think I need to get some practice before I start on my decorative grannies, so I was wondering if you'd be interested in a granny square crochet along (CAL).
According to Wikipedia, a granny square is "a crochet technique for producing square fabric by working in rounds from the center outward." Sounds easy enough.
Aren't they pretty?!!!
Now we could do this CAL one of two ways: all crochet the same pattern or crochet the same size item but with our own favorite granny pattern.
I'm pretty sure I have chosen my pattern. It is a granny square lapghan that includes 20 granny squares. So, however we choose to work the CAL, you will need to crochet 20 granny squares.
The CAL will start on May 3 and run until June 30, which is a little over 8 weeks. So, 2-3 granny squares a week. How 'bout those math skills? :) That sounds very doable. By the way, does anyone know what June 30th is??? If you do, it will give you a little clue as to the pattern I will be crocheting. :)
Sound like fun? Leave me a comment if you'd like to join and whether you would like to choose your own pattern or crochet the same pattern. I'll be gathering my yarn this weekend, hopefully from my very own yarn stash.
Ooh, what a great destash along project this will be too!!!
