The granny square reveal


I did it... I actually completed a granny square.

I ended up resorting to youtube and watching a left-handed tutorial, and then it finally all came back to me.

The funny thing is Mandrake's reaction to this whole crochet thing... he thinks I've turned into a real Nana now. He's put up with all the softies and totes without complaining... but you should have heard him last night after he saw me making a granny square!

I tried to assure him that it was actually cool to be into crafts... but he didn't really believe me.

Although... I did have to laugh when I saw his puppy in her little jumper (my mum refashioned a cardigan sleeve into a dog jumper!)... now that's what I'd call "Nana-ish" (Narnia the Nana).
