Eric: LaPush, baby! You in?
Bella: Should I know what that means?
. . . . . . . . . . .
Sure you should, Bella. It means it is the first week of our granny along. Are you ready?!! Well, let’s jump right in.
Week 1 tasks: tell which pattern you chose: La Push Blanket or DROPS Blanket; who you are making the pattern for and why; and review your chosen pattern for questions or potential problem areas.
Extra task: post a picture of your supplies
Of course you can begin making your granny squares if you are so inclined, but I thought it would be nice to see which pattern everyone chose before we begin crocheting.
. . . . . . . . . . .
As you know, I have chosen the La Push Blanket, though I am currently rethinking my choice. I took a look at the pattern this weekend and am completely stumped on the second row. I am going to look at it again tonight and hope that I was just tired. If not, it is going to be a long 2 months. 🙂
I am making the blanket for myself to get some granny square practice. I have a very interesting home decor granny square project that I want to get started on, but I have never attempted granny squares before. This is the purpose of this granny along!
Drusilla is keeping an eye on all of my La Push Blanket supplies, or maybe she’s just waiting for me to turn my back so she can gnaw on some yarn. 🙂 I have a ton more white yarn, but I thought three skeins was good for now. I am a little concerned about the green. I just hope I don’t need to buy another gigantic green skein.
How do you like my new snazzy reading glasses?
I’ve been having problems seeing really close lately, so my doctor suggested reading glasses. I got the lowest grade I could find at Michaels
for $2.00! I thought they looked like a crafter’s reading glasses. The pair I got for work cost me $25.00, but they are a lot more subdued.
Okay, so now it is your turn. If you are planning on blogging about the granny along, just post a link to your Week 1 post in the comment section. Or, you can just answer the questions in the comment section. Whatever works for you works for me!
This weekend I finally got around to making a granny along button too.
Feel free to post it on your blog or your posts.
