Join as you go crochet!!

I love to crochet granny squares, I really do!! What I don't like is having to sew them together when I am finished with them. Sooooo.....I finally got up the courage to try the join as you go method. OH. MY. GOODNESS. I am in love! I'll admit I did find it a little tricky at first, the hook kept getting in the way and I kept saying  "what in the world do I keep doing wrong?" But I got it!!! Yeah! I'm using  Vanna's Choice yarn. I love how all of the colors go so well together. And best of all...no sewing at the end. I will post some more pics as I go along, I'm loving how this is coming out.

Scrap Granny Square Afghan

Wow, it's been a really long time since I posted anything, hasn't it? Life, among other things gets in the way! But just because I haven't posted anything that does not mean that I have not been working on anything. Right now I'm working on so many things that I can hardly keep up with them.

I have so many large and small skeins of scrap yarn hanging around in my closet and I was like...hmm, they are much too nice for me to throw away so what am I going to do with them?

I searched Pinterest (I think Pinterest is an amazing place for creative people like me!!!) and I saw  someone working on a scrap granny square afghan. It's nothing fancy and it's really easy to work but I love the random colors and the fact that it's perfect for the scrap yarn that I don't want to simply toss in the trash.
I will post some more photos as I go along. Now I have to start thinking about what I want to do for a border.
