Does your Granny make squares?

The young woman at the craft store asked me what I was going to do with all the yarn. When I told her I was going to make granny squares, she said, “Oh, that’s so nice. I wish my granny would have done that with me.”

Okay, first of all . . . yeah. And secondly . . . . just . . . yeah. I have no words.

Making a granny square was on my bucket list. I’ve learned some pretty advanced needle art techniques on my own, but for the life of me, I just never could figure out crochet. Jayda gets a little silly-giggly for me in her intros, but if you can get past that, her tutorials are clear and thorough. Since subscribing to this channel, I’ve made afghans, dishcloths, potholders, scarves and hats! And I suspect her knitting videos are just as good.

Trying to make sense of it all and . . . for the most part . . . doing it.

  1. Sorry I laughed out loud at the clerks remark about what you were going to do with the yarn. Anyone over 35 is old enough to be a granny to some young people. I made a whole afghan out of granny squares years ago, in my late 30’s. Hobbies change. Hope to see photos of the finished products. 😉
