I am participating in a Giant Granny Challenge, more of a crochet along really. You can read all about it over here: http://lemondedesucrette.wordpress.com/2011/06/29/giant-granny-challenge/ . This is the first post and she has a few more since. There is also a space on flicker http://www.flickr.com/groups/sucrettes-giant-granny-challenge and even one on https://www.ravelry.com/ and a button has been made. It's been really nice to follow the posts and see how different people have help bring each piece of this together. So come on what are you waiting for join in the fun. Also, I remembered in my faviorite saves, I had saved a tutorial from Purl Soho that can be found here: http://www.purlbee.com/the-purl-bee/2009/3/24/joelles-giant-granny-square.html. I'm at about 19 rows here, of course these are the fun ones, now they start to get a little more time consuming with each color row. All is all, it is a simple no brainer project and just plain relaxing and fun, great way to use up those scraps, I happen to be using wool, but acrylic works just fine also.
Have a great day, enjoy the color...the color pink especially!!! Hugs, Michelle
