thank you so much for all of your nice comments!  Kiss

@pixieval: i don't know how that joining method is called. i put 2 squares right side facing
each other together and then crocheted along. (i can post a pic of the backside if wanted)



@mbleep: yes, i found a lot of paterns at a german site,named nadelspiel.com
(-->  http://www.nadelspiel.com/category/haekeln/haekelmotive/ ). there are a lot of videos on youtube,just search for
"nadelspiel" und "granny square". the videos are all in german,but i think it should
be possible to follow the instructions just by watching. i used like 4 patterns from the videos and then
combined them /altered them and some are completely made by myself.

the blocks are 12cm x 12cm (must be something like 5x5 inches).some are bigger,some smaller.it depends on
the pattern. (btw.there are 120 blocks in this blanket )


@LordVader: yeah! the blanket in roseanne totally inspired me to do that!
i think granny squares aren't that difficult to make. i'm sort of a beginner,too.i think you should
really try it,it's a great project to learn more about crocheting because it combines a lot of different
stitches. good luck! Smiley

Inspiration without application is moot.

I LOVE this!  I so want to learn to crochet, just to make granny squares.  I need to learn to crochet!!!  I need to find a patient teacher . . . teaching myself is not working.  Anyway, I love the colors and how each is different!  Awesome work!

ROck on!

Normally, granny squares are one of my least favourite crafts, but I gotta admit I like this a lot. Must be the great colours. So glad you kept at it until it was done -- getting past that half-way point can be a real struggle.
