Apparently, many crocheters start with Granny Squares. I don't know how I managed to be oblivious to their existence, but I just discovered them a few months ago. They are so much fun to make!
However, when you are making lots of little squares that will eventually be joined to make a larger, more substantial something, it helps for them to be the same size. I made my first granny squares about a month ago, and decided to add to the meager pile a few nights ago. Unfortunately, I took no notes of what hook size I used to create the first ones. I am now the proud owner of a random pile of pretty crocheted blobs that will not play nicely together.
They will probably be relegated to the box of un-finished projects in my closet until they decide to become something useful. Now I know... for the love of God, write it down!
