My grandmother taught me how to crochet. It wasn't anything fancy. She had a basket full of yarn and some hooks. Me and my siblings would sit and crochet very long chains while we watched TV. That was all I knew, single crochet. I don't remember everything my grandmother crocheted, but I do remember her Granny Squares! I remember her even making slippers out of Granny Squares.
It wasn't until years later, that I finally bought myself a "How-To" book and taught myself something other than a big long single crochet chain. But I still find crocheting very relaxing and it brings back many memories of sitting making those original chains.
In the next few days, I will be posting my favorite version of the Granny Square in honor of my Grandma.
