Like I said on Monday, I took a three-hour class on “Granny Squares 101” at Harmony in Provo. The name “Granny Squares 101” was right in the title but I assumed we’d get a breakdown of the stitches and THEN learn how to put them together into the granny squares. Well, not so much…so I can crochet a granny square and a granny square only. But I can crochet now!

I”m still figuring out tension and hand positions but it turns out that self-striping yarn works great in crochet, too–there was even an afghan example at the class that was just one giant granny square made with yarn with a long color change. (Naturally I bought the same yarn.) I guess we’ll see how long it takes to make an afghan!
