This was my first granny square that actually achieved a square shape. I was so excited. It finally clicked, so I had to take a photo even though it was only half done (there was another round to go). Even after borrowing several books from the library and being loned another I still had no idea what was going on. I was sad. But somehow by the magic that is the internet, I just happened to be looking through a craft blog, Meet Me At Mikes, and it just happened to have posts (incl. videos) about crocheting granny squares for beginners. Yay!
