this sounds like fun.  I've been wanting to do some crazy granny squares for a while...I've only done plain ones in the past.  I think I'm in (as long as I can manage taking my work with me on holiday)

I am in also!  I bought yarn to do this forever ago and never got going, but since i am down for the count with pneumonia i may as well do something productive that doesn't wear me out.  I think i might start tomorrow though, i want to make a blanket for my bed and 30 is not going to cut it.

I am definitely in for this one.  I work in a call center from 3pm till midnight every night.  The powers that be have decided that we can have absolutely nothing other than yarn for our company's pet project (making things for nursing home residents) at our desks, and I get my last call around 8.  I can definitely do a square a day, and make a nice blanket for one of the residents.
And....yay!  I have enough time to play with different patterns to decide what sort to do!

Count me in!  I've been working on a granny square afghan on and off for about 4 years (so mostly off).  Tongue

But seriously, I see a lot of the granny daughter swaps, and again, my patience level is not there for joining granny's daughters in an afghan!! but a granny square swap would be a lot of fun. you should start a thread for it in the swap theme idea board!!
I know at one time there were granny square swaps run by indigo_roses, but I think the last one was Friendship Granny Square Round 14 (June 2009).  I think it might be time to revive! Wink

 Grin I know, I'm such a troublemaker!  And you know how your mom always said to you (at least mine did):  "I hope when you grow up, you have a kid JUST LIKE YOU!"  And guess what, it happened!   Roll Eyes Tongue

You know what though, I'm a preschool teacher, and I worked in preschool special ed. for many years, and the kids that were the "troublemakers" were usually my "favorites"!  They took what the world had handed them and made it work for them in their environment!

(But I truly am glad there is some agreement on my idea...but I'm with whoever said not the tiny little granny squares...that would be crazy to have to join all of those!)

I did that and I finally finished it a few weeks ago!   Grin

I've never done a differently shaped granny and I want to but I already have squares madefrom a project that I start and never finished.   Roll Eyes  

And I would be totally up for turning these awesome squares/shapes into a swap project!   Cheesy

I've been wanting to learn to make granny squares and I just inherited a lot (I'm not kidding, I mean A LOT) of yarn. Sounds like a good way to learn. Count me in.
