Look, Ma! I'm crochet-ing!


Since I decided that yarn was a whole area that I had been shamefully neglecting in my high-fibre diet, I looked to Martha for help...

Granny Square directions! Right there on her website! That, combined with an uncharacteristic perusal of the yarn aisle at Zellers (I'm not fancy... yet...) and I'm five squares into a retro-fabulous brown and turquoise scarf. Dig it!

I like how you are making the color combo off-kilter with the granny-square pattern, unlike the traditional way. Very hip and happening!

It's a brown/turquoise variegated yarn, but the switch between the two colours isn't very gradual. It's brown, then BAM!- turquoise. I wish I had been as clever as you thought I was! :-)

I love granny squares! I learned how to crochet in a class at the CreativFestival last October (got a bronze pass for me birthday :) ) Everyone else was making a double crochet scarf but I whined and whined till the lady taught me granny squares :D
