Flickr Favorites - One a Month

About a month or so ago a friend of mine on Ravelry suggested I join a crochet group. She and I had both just finished a CAL (crochet-a-long), where she won for making the most beautiful cardigan I might add, and I had been telling her I was unsure of what to make next.

She sent me an invite to join a Crochet a Block a Month group and without hesitation I signed up. You make one granny square each month from the pattern they supply (6" or 12" square) and at the end of the year you seam your squares together to make a blanket!

This is the coolest project for me, because I love having something little to work on for a day or two in between tedious projects. Now every month when I feel bored I just pick up my block a month project. I'm actually going to do about 18 or possibly even 24 of the 12" squares so I have a nice big blanket for our bedroom.

If you are a member of ravelry I really suggest checking out the group! It has been tons of fun so far. Once I have a few blocks completed I'll share pictures :)

If you'd like to make your own flickr favorites head on over to Mitsy's blog and sign up!

Ohh, those blankets you chose are gorgeous! My granny square project is hibernating for now. I'm swamped in work at the moment!
SO SO SO sorry for not getting back to you yet! I owe you a long long e-mail! It's on my to-do list if it's a comfort! ;)
Hope all is well with you and Lee! *hugs*

Love the bright colored blankets you shared :) I just joined a 'granny a day' crochet along group myself and I'm looking forward to it :) Should be fun!

ooooh have fun with a granny-a-day! I've considered attempting the one day, but I feel more confident that I'll actually finish a once-a-month square challenge :)
