I've got the granny squares virus

As a crochet-addict, I couldn't stay behind ! Being next to Veer(le) last weekend I got the 'wooly-itch' as I saw all her beautiful knitwork.
My daughter bought a second hand couch and refurbished it with new
fabric.  So, to surprise her I started to make a fluffy granny square blanket that
would match perfectly with her new couch. 
Still about 180 squares to go ...
and not used to crochet with a huge ball of 200 grs, rather a big contrast with my usual crocheting work.

Granny squares are very fun to make!!!
Wow, 180 more...
You can cheat, by making a GIANT Granny square! (Imagine the joy -- no need to join piece by piece!) But that is me, I always take short-cuts :D

Hahahaha, heel leuke foto's!
In jullie familie is wel altijd wat gaande precies! Super!
Je dochter zal tevreden zijn denk ik, de kleuren zijn alvast super van het haakwerk en gaan perfect met de kleur van de zetel.
Veel succes nog!!

This throw with the beautiful colors will look wonderful on the recycled couch, and your daughter will add those grannies to her many love patches from you!
