This is basically a motivation crochetalong. If you want to work on a granny square, motif, one huge granny square blanket, this is a great way to set aside time everyday to get some serious work completed in an attainable amount of time.

People have come up with some really neat uses for grannys too! Different bags and blankets, shopping sack holder, slippers, scarves, a nifty pullover etc. I have made 7" grannys and after a month I have 30 squares that make a perfect size throw blanket.

If you are intrested and would like to join we would love to see your work! Post pics of progress and then at the end of the month post a pic of al that you accomplished! It would be great if everyone could post progress weekly (but not required). At the end of the month we can piece together our work and show off our afghans and Inga bags and whatever else you can come up with to make with nifty grannies! (Must post a completed project or progress pic in this thread.)

You can find many of the other threads in the crochet-a-long section to see how we have done it before!

I might have to try this out but probably won't get more than one a day done since I'm a beginner. I tried doing a granny square already but was having trouble. I'll have to give it another shot.

I'll be happy to join, but since I jOined the Granny-a-day May on May 26, I only got three squares done. Would I be able to continue using those squares?

I probably shouldn't start a new project but...I'm super tired of only doing wedding crafts!
This'll be a nice break though.  Maybe it will be give me even more motivation to finish up
the other things I'm supposed to be doing, lol.

i also want to do a mario 8-bit granny square blanket for my brother-in-law. i'm kind of intimidated by the thought, though. i'm not sure how i want to attatch them yet, but i'll probably end up doing an as-you-go method.

Glad to see some great people joining in on the CaL this month...hope to see lots of pics!!  Smiley
