Happy New Year!!

Where has the time gone. I wish everyone a Happy New Year.  Let's try to make this one a good year and focus on being kind to all and being less selfish, especially while behind the wheel of a car. LOL.

I got myself a round loom kit this year with a gift card from Michaels.  I tried the straight loom this last month and found it addictive and easy.  So I started a hat and even learned two different style stitches thanks to You Tube, one being a purl stitch.  So far here's my progress.
I also joined a CAL (crochet a long) on Ravelry for a square a month.  My intention this year is to make another blanket for single bed.  I found doing the ripple takes more time and hoping that by making the squares and joining them will result in a blanket faster as I am such a patient person, not.  I was checking my blog roll on Bloglovin and came across this granny a day post on Ali's Blog.  My best intention will be to try and do a square a day but somehow life may not always permit it and can try for a few or more a week.  I had already started some small squares, so I guess I can continue with that.

I am also working on a project for myself where I came across the idea on Pinterest.  This site creates some serious addiction problems.  More to come upon completion.

I would like to eventually post a mosaic of all my projects this year.  Maybe tomorrow.

Happy New Year to you and thanks for the link! Don't stress too much about the Granny-A-Day - do it at your own pace! It will be great to see the results however many squares you do - it's the taking part that's the most important. Ali

Happy new year to you and all your family. Sorry for my poor english that I understand your writing you ll make blanket with crochet squares. It will take a long time but the result will be wonderful I think. I begun a single bed blanket with granny squares last year. I did not finished it but I think I ll finish my blanket in 2012. Best wishes..

I will do what I can Ali and try and post more frequently. Happy New Year to you all. I can't wait to see a completed Granny Blanket. Carissa, the looms are so easy. You Tube shows you how to wrap pegs in different ways for different stitches.
