I LOVE granny squares. I love their simplicity. I love their color (or lack of). I love how they transport me back to my childhood. I love how I feel close to my mother & grandmother when I'm making them.
Granny squares were the first thing I learnt to crochet - I made myself I giant granny square bag that I took to school for awhile (it was the 70's!).
Here is my latest crochet project - a granny square cushion. I used yarn left over from my ripple rug.
