Just pretend that little image is a nice picture of a large stack of brown and pink granny squares, will you? It appears I've misplaced my picture, so that graphic will have to do. Anyway.. this past soccer season I decided to keep busy during those practices that I'd crochet a blanket. I'm not entirely sure why I was hit with this notion, other then the fact that dragging along the sewing machine was a tad inconvenient. Only, my crocheting skills were kinda limited and hazy considering the last thing I recall crocheting was a few stitches on a dolls outfit when I was younger. So, I decided to see what I could find online, which is when I stumbled upon The Art Of Crochet. Her blog is a well spring of patterns and instructions, and if that isn't enough for you she also has a load of videos on you tube showing how to do the patterns as well. And, if you're like me, you'll probably need both!
