I am so excited! Who knows when I'll take the time to actually sit down and do these, but Rachel Denbow has posted three fabulous links on the RVA blog that demonstrate crocheting granny squares. She also gives some great tips.
I've tried numerous times to do crochet projects with those "teach yourself" books, but have never gotten more complicated than a simple scarf. Simple scarfs no more! These video tutorials (by a crafty man no doubt) are just what my visual mind needed to grasp some of the concepts that I wasn't getting through reading and looking at the illustrations in the books.
The cute granny squares pictured above are those of the purl bee on flickr.
