25 by 25 Update

Good day lovelies!

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. I know I did. I had plans on posting pics of the weekend and sharing but I forgot my camera in Clint's truck so that will be another day.

You may have seen up in my tab bar that one is titled '25 by 25' you can read about it here. I have slowly been working on a few of those goals. Over the winter I have been working on granny squares, they are just the easiest things to make and I'm hoping to turn them into a lovely afgan.

Aren't those colours just the most beautiful?! I just love them! I laid them out so I could bask in their beauty. I also wanted to see how much I had, the total is 88 thus far. I have a feeling that I won't make them for a while since it is now spring and crocheting is just not really a spring or summer pass time but who knows.

Also I have a question for ya. How do you put the squares together? If you know any good tutorials or something let me know please. I would really appreciate it.

Blessings,
Amber

  5. Gorgeous! I love making granny squares. You can slip stitch them together, but I prefer to crochet them together as you go - it will add an extra round. Here's a tutorial for slip stitching them together http://www.crochetspot.com/how-to-slip-stitch-crocheted-pieces-together/ the whole website is well worth a read, loads of free patterns, stitches and tutorials.
