Normally, I"m not a huge fan of crochet-alongs. Most of them seem to take forever, or I'm just not interested in whatever is being made. However, I did come across this one that I thought I'd share with you.
Knot Your Nana's Crochet is doing a granny square crochet along. Each week, she'll post 3 granny squares. Her end project is going to be a queen size blanket, but you can use the granny squares to make just about anything. Pillow cases, scarves, etc. It might be fun to follow along. I know I'm surely thinking about it!
