I'm recently re-learning to crochet (and I only knew the basics to begin with) One of my best friends is in love with granny squares, so I really just relearned how to make the square to hopefully show her one day. Anyway, once I got started, I just had to keep going and going and going, until I was done. Done ended up being 54"x54". I also learned how to change out colors which I had never known how to do before!

UPDATE!

SHE LOVED IT! (June 2012)

I apologize for the horrible lighting in this picture. I finished this a few months ago, and will be gifting it to my niece in the next few weeks/month for her birthday. She's turning 9. I hope she loves it!<<
