This is what my 3-ply carded Shetland dyed "dusky seafoam" turned out like.
This is what my first attempts at granny squares turned out like.
Once I thought I got the hang of it, I started a stack of granny squares. I'm not sure what I'll do with them. After doing a little crocheting, I checked ravelry to see what people have been crocheting these days. Holy cow. I've ignored the whole crochet element to ravelry, but now I can see there's so many talented people out there!
