In my 'Things I Want to Make' post I mentioned that I wanted to make an afghan crochet blanket using all sorts of different squares.
I thought it would be a good way of developing my skills in the crochet department and I was quite taken with the idea of learning a whole heap of different patterns, using a variety of different coloured wool and having another exciting project on the go.
I didn't really plan to get going on it just yet, as I do have quite a few other creative endeavours that I flick between already on the go at the mo....
One of those Granny a Day crochet along projects has pushed my intention forward by a couple of months. Pip over at Meet Me at Mikes has set up 'A Granny a Day 2012' and I just couldn't resist.

The pattern I used for the flower in a square above was suggested by Pip and can be found here.
I used a size 4mm hook and the finished square came out at 4 inches / 10 cm.
Also one thing to remember about this pattern is that when it says to do a 'dc' it's actually an AU / UK treble. I tried them both ways but the tr looks far better.
Two down, and many more to go!
