Granny square

Slowly getting the hang of it..

Well, it took me a few goes (you should have seen my first attempt.. it was hilarious, it was more like a 'granny hexagon') but I got there in the end.

Tom set up a little kettle next to the bed and the weather in Perth has finally dropped below 30 degrees, so I am enjoying lying here, drinking tea and attempting to figure out what a half-treble is.

I half treble is the only one i know.... but i have no chance of attempting to explain it!

I'm struggling away with the knitting needles at the moment...

Impressive!
I still don't know the name of different stitches and have to look them up every time I start a new pattern.

What a neat granny-square... can't wait to see what you make with a bundle of them. A bed side kettle sounds perfect as does this weather for tea drinking. I'm sitting here with one next to me now, trying to relax by catching up on a few blogs while I listen out for Sophie's cries :)

You did so great! It's quite satisfying isn't it? I can't go beyond the normal granny square treble stitch so you're doing all learning new stitches already. What are you making? Mel xx

I learned to make a granny square from this book as well, and I definitely remember that there was quite a bit of cursing involved before i got the hang of it :)

p.s. just found your blog and wanted to tell you that i think it's lovely. x

What is the book you are using? I am thinking of getting one to help me! But I'd like one with great diagrams like that.

Emma - I am using Pip Lincoln's book 'Meet me at Mike's'. Although I started off by watching tutorials on you tube which really help if you are just beginning.. Good luck!

Great work! what are you making?

Thanks Katie - I have that book but unfortunately it is packed away in storage at the moment, my husband and I are traveling around Australia and one thing I wanted to learn as we went was to crochet, but am now without the book! I have been watching Pip's videos though which are great, my granny square is more of a hexagon though too :( And I feel like a hippo doing brain surgery holding everything!
