I learned how to crochet in high school when I got done with my sewing project early and my teacher was nice enough to teach me how to crochet. I didn't learn anything complicated - just chain, single and double crochet and how to make a granny square. I loved the granny square and made a granny square lap blanket for my great grandmother (all one big square because I never knew how to change colors or add them together or anything).
Since that's been probably about 5 years ago and I haven't kept up with it, I can't remember how to make a granny square for the life of me. I have all the supplies and have been trying for like two nights to get it right. I've looked at patterns online but I feel like I've been doing something wrong, b/c once I get to a certain point it just isn't coming out right so I have to rip it all out. I've seen all the lovely blankets on here and I desperately want to remember how to make those little squares and make cute little blankets. Really, a granny square is all I want to do, I know I don't really have any patience for a larger project.
Anyways, enough of my lamenting, I did have a question for you experienced crocheters. When you all work with yarn, do you reroll the yarn into balls? I never have before, but (obviously I'm not experienced) I didn't know if it would help out in the long run when working on projects?
Thanks so much!
