Maybe I need to have lessons, that way I can visualize things better. It's pretty difficult to capture all the twists & turns of hook & yarn on a flat illustration. Then there is the stubborn part of me that really wants to crack the crochet code on my own & have the bragging right to be self taught. It's pretty silly isn't it? Think of how much time I have wasted, when I could be taught already & churning out my own lovely creations!
So instead of staring at my sad, little neglected crochet box, I have been working on a fabric version of the granny square. This cute granny square tutorial by Jolene, is the perfect project for us crochet challenged types. It's a very simple block, you just need the patience (or one of those cool Go cutters) to make lots of 2.5" squares. Perfect for scrap busting!

My challenge to you is to start using your stash instead of staring at it. Seriously. I know you all have that little pile of hoard somewhere in your sewing room :) And yes, to all the crochet geniuses out there, maybe you can share some nuggets of advice for this stubborn stitcher!
