I will be participating in a fun AND challenging crochet project for the month of May. It’s called A Square a Day in May from a great blog called Hooked on Handmade. Basically, everyday in May you get to crochet a different granny square. I’m excited about this because I love learning and trying new crochet techniques. I have already checked out and downloaded most of the patterns. There are some really cool designs!
I do have to admit, at first I thought these would be little granny squares. Like if you want to make a lovely granny afghan. Nope I was wrong! These will be big and beautiful 12 x 12 inch squares with a lot of color and detail. So again it’s going to be quite the challenge mostly because I need to find the time in the day to sit down and make one. I’ve got a busy two year old and a hubby who need my love. Also a house to keep up with. You know, the usual stuff. But I am still excited to do this and I think I’ll be able to make it work.
Since May is just around the corner, I’ve been gathering up my supplies and figuring out what yarn I’m going to use. I decided on using Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice yarn. I have a lot on hand and when I need more, I won’t be spending a ton of money.
Here are the lovely colors I am using
And this little guy will be my hook. I’m using a 6 mm just because I tend to have pretty tight stitches. Also I absolutely love my bamboo handle hooks! I only have a couple sizes and the 6 mm has always been a good one for me.
So what do you think? Does this sound like something you want to try?
Well then hop over to Hooked on Handmade and get all the details! She has everything laid out along with the patterns for each day of the month.
I think I am going to get a head start on my first square since the little one is heading to bed
Have a great night everyone and happy hooking!
