Last year, when we began work on our blankets - as one of our new year's resolutions for 2011 (ahem!)- I decided that I would try to make a granny square a day. Given that the blanket is still far from finished, you can see that I was not entirely successful.
However, my granny blanket has recently been given a new lease of life. First of all, you reminded me of it when you visited with your own crochet grannies. I dug out my own bag of squares and was reminded of how much I loved the colour combinations and the gradual building of a whole.
Then, I read on Twitter that Mollie Makes were starting a granny square a day project. This was the push that I needed to bring my blanket out of hibernation. Along with Claire, Amy and of course your good self, I have been diligently crocheting one granny square a day and sharing it with the #agrannyaday hash tag. A little camaraderie and moral support goes along way (thanks, ladies!) and I'm now eleven squares closer to a completed blanket. Hopefully my dedication will last at least long enough for me to complete a lap-sized blanket, even if I don't manage a king-sized one.
