I don't now, but I did... one day when I have time I'll get into it again. When I was 16, I spent a summer making an afghan. It was just a whole bunch of granny squares of all different colours. Then I crocheted them all together and PRESTO! One afghan that I still have!

I used to crochet and loved it - I don't do it anymore because I just don't have the extra time. I would love to pick it up again. I made a huge afghan that I am still very proud of, it is stunning. I let my parents have it and they keep it on the bed in one of the guest rooms. I have made a bunch of other blankets and stuff, but the one I gave to my parents was just huge.

I crochet as well. I don't do it often but I pick up a needle when I have the time. My grandmother taught me when I was a little girl and its sort of like riding a bike. Once you learn you never forget.
I have made many afghans, pot holders, hats and scarves (I made a bunch of these one Christmas and gave them away as gifts) baby blankets when there is a birth in the family. I think thats about it :lol:
My eyesight is getting bad so I don't do it as often as I would like :-(

I make a few things every year. I like to crochet in the winter. I have made blankets years ago but just don't take on those big projects any more. This year for christmas I made 3 beanie hats, 1 scarf and a really really cool tote bag that I made using old plastic sacks ( walmart bags). I have a baby blanket started that I have been piddeling around with, I was making it for a girlfriend of mine but she went and had a girl... I somehow thought it was going to be a boy... :oops:

I like to crochet...It helps me think. :D

Currently I'm working on a baby blanket and a scarf also, and I've
already made two pot holders for my mom for Christmas. :)

I made Tony some floor mats for his old truck :lol: I should take a photo I was pretty proud of them. When I think of it I will get one posted

I like to do basic crotchet, but i don't know how to do those flowery squares. I want to though.

I crotchet from time to time. For my first project I got in over my head and started a huge blanket that I still have not finished it, and that was like 4 years ago! Now that I have read this I might pull it out again... And my grandmother is teaching me how to knitt as well.
