Yay!  I am taking a class (after my mom tried to teach me multiple times and I tried to teach myself multiple times) and finally got it.  Here are my first 4 granny squares -- I want to make an autumn themed afghan.  Of course I probably won't finish til spring, but, what the heck?  

Rock on!

Awesome! I've been crocheting for overa year now and I still can't figure out how to make a granny square. They look great.

Great job! I crocheted for YEARS before attempting a granny square! LOL!  That beginning chain was a killer for me...now that I can do it, I don't understand why!

Great! It's always good to see a new crocheter enter the fray Cheesy They look good together! And don't worry, I'm working on a 4th of July ish afghan.
The blocks are big, too, so it shouldn't need that many for a blanket, and yet here I am XD
