Mom has been practicing this crochet stuff every single night. She bought a larger crochet hook than what she had thinking that bigger would be easier to see all of her mistakes and trust me, there were a LOT of them!
This is her practice piece.
She discovered that the only stitches you need to know to make the granny square are the chain stitch and the double crochet! She's there!
This is her first competed granny square!
There's a lot of uneven-ness and slanted stitches but mom is so proud of herself! She's wanted to learn how to crochet for a long time and seeing Doyle and Mollie's granny squares on their blog was the push that our mom needed!
The hat will come later. Mom still needs to learn more stitches to make me a hat!
Thank doG for You Tube! She watched granny square videos until she couldn't take it anymore! Mom is a slow learner and she says You Tube is a lot smarter way to go than antagonizing your friends to keep showing you the stitches over and over!
Here's the next square~
Right now it's all practice.
This one still needs two more rounds to make it match the other one in size!
Way to go, mom!
Dad comes home today! We can't wait to hear all of his stories!
