Alright, so Im wanting to make a granny square blanket but, after about 5 granny squares I get bored and lose interest.  Well, I seen the thread and thought it was a great way to stay motivated.  You know post pics of my progress and see others progress.  Anyways, My goal is to do at least 7 granny squares a day.  Hopefully more, but at least 7.  Im rotating colors so it keeps me interested.  Anyways, for being June 2nd Ive got a lot done.  Heres my progress:


Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

This is a great idea! I'm going to be doing this for four months straight so by the time my wedding comes around in October I'll have four throws done for my bridesmaids ^_^

The Doctor: What, you've never been bored? Never had a long night? Never had a lot of cabinets to put up?

I am going to join in, I am not sure yet if I am going to do a bunch of squares or one giant. I have to go dig out all my purple and maybe a few other colors that will go with. I just moved into a very small house and my yarn takes up a good corner in my DD's closet so the sooner I get through it the better.

It hasn't started yet, but I am organizing my things and I also have household errands to run today and finding goodies at the local thrift stores is on the schedule for today.
