Hello A Granny A Day – Day 1 Posted on April 16, 2009 Hello! I’m on borrowed internet – so this’ll be quick! It’s my number one granny!

BellaKarma April 17, 2009 at 4:08 AM How cool! I was blog-searching for granny squares (‘cos I just blogged about my own) – and came across your post! The cool thing is: I used to read your blog, but I somehow lost my link to it a while back! Going to add it to my Google Reader right now! =) Emjie April 17, 2009 at 3:14 AM I was just thinking the Granny Squares could also work as cup coasters. littlechrissy April 16, 2009 at 10:54 PM I made my first ever square last night! It’s a little messy – don’t think i’ve quite got the hang of joining rounds yet, but I’m so proud. This has been a very long week of cursing crochet and throwing the wool down in a funk. Something obviously clicked last night. Birdy Moola @ Oola Moola April 16, 2009 at 5:43 PM Love Granny number one. More, please! xx Ulla April 16, 2009 at 12:26 PM Pretty yarn for granny squares is on my shopping list for tomorrow! I’m inspired. messenger April 16, 2009 at 12:02 PM oooooh, you’re too good!

Holding my breath for day 2. Lyn April 16, 2009 at 9:59 AM Great colours Pip! I never progressed beyond chain stitch when I was a little girl, but proper crochet is on my list of things to learn this year. My mum will teach me. She told me a story recently that she taught herself to crochet out of sheer determination after her first husband died in 1971 (with 4 kids between 9 months and 12 years). It seems that crochet was her comfort during that time.
