I'm Hooking Again

For the first time in a long time, I picked up my crochet hook again. I blame this on my dear friend Caroline, who introduced me to I fell head over heels in love and promptly ordered some yarn.

Because I'm a bit daft and like to challenge myself, I decided to crochet a Granny Square lapghan for my mom in her favourite colour - green. I've never crocheted a granny square before, never crocheted in the round before. It was all brand new! After watching half a dozen YouTube tutorials and close scrutiny of the patttern, I gave it a go.

The first two rounds are made from Swish Tonal Yarn in Canopy.

After a little fumbling and more YouTube videos, I managed to change colours and do 4 rounds of Swish Worsted Yarn in Jade.

Next step - add 6 rounds of Swish Worsted Yarn in White.

This has been a lot of fun to work on so far, and I already have a few colourways planned in my head for the next granny square lapghan I'll make.
