When I was home a couple of weeks ago my Mom taught me how to crochet a granny square. It was her second attempt at teaching me and I was determined to figure it out this time. After a few successful granny squares I started this blanket. I was making it for the dogs, but my husband refused to let me give it to them and suggested I give it to him instead.. I decided to make a giant granny square instead of a bunch of little ones because I thought it might be a little easier and go faster considering this is my first blanket. Its almost finished.
