Well I have been madly making granny squares with my crochet hook. This is the reason that I have not made any softies to give away these past couple of weeks.
Being a novice in the crochet department I am quite chuffed at my ability to churn the squares out. I have found that doing granny squares is a great portable craft. I can stuff my current half completed square into my bag and carry it around with me so that when I have some free time I can continue on with finishing the square.
Another way that I take some crafting stuff around with me to fill in any idle time is to have a whole lot of blank dolly faces and some embroidery threads. I can then embroider faces when the mood strikes.
I have successfully googled how to join granny squares and next weekend when I can block out a couple of hours of free time I plan on joining my blanket together.
Well that's all from me for now.
