So... last night I was looking at the edge instructions for the Hemlock Ring Blanket and realized it would be SO much easier to do the crochet bind off. I haven't 'really' tried to crochet anything since I was about 8 years old, and all this calls for is a chain of 7. Sounds silly, but I was terrified to screw up the edging since this blanket is taking quite a while to get done (I'm about 1/2 way... ish).

Anyway I watched a few videos last night at 3am when I couldn't sleep, and I got the chain with very little effort :) So today I set out to make a granny square with some leftover Malabrigo... and I did it!!!!

Baby steps... but... I did it!!!

Great Job! Crocheting is sooooo easy..and fun!
Check out Mary Grace's Blog, Hooked On Needles...she has some really great crochet videos! Also, Youtube has a bazillion crochet videos. I also learned a lot of stitches on Nexstitch.com.

Funny you should mention the Hemlock Ring Blanket....I just finished my 2nd one yesterday. The first one that I made, I did the crochet bind off and it was the first time I ever tried crochet...you won't believe how easy it is to do. I haven't blocked it yet...probably will get to it this week.

On this Hemlock, I knitted to row 60...takes forever to go around once...LOL!

If you're on Ravelry, you can check out my projects...I'm merryknitter and I have a picture of the red one that I knit for my sister-in-law.

Make sure you post a picture of the finished Hemlock!
Happy Crocheting!
Merry :)

Nice beginning of a square. The more you do the easier it gets. Practice to coin a phase makes perfect.
