I wanted to learn how to crochet, and did so by making granny squares. I thought I could make an afghan out of granny squares, so I bought a lot of yarn, and started. It took me longer than I thought, but here it is, finished. For DH.

Very nice!!! My first love "was" crochet..I too made tons of grannies...but never graduated to seaming em into anything..good thing, cause I ended up "donating" to a great cause!!!

Oh, a mason comment... what an honor :D

I know it's colorful, what can you do...

What a great afghan!:) I love Granny Squares cause they remind me of my Granny--honestly, she made lots of granny square items!
