Have discovered dangerously addictive quality of crocheted granny squares.
Small size & ease of completion = great small scale satisfaction without requiring pattern or thought.
Daughter has requested red blanket to cover herself on the couch. I complain about her extensive using of the great grandmother's (mine, so her great-great grandmother's) crocheted blanket as hiding place/random stretchy/thing to leave on the floor.
She wants her own.
Plus... I have stash yarn.
Resistance is futile.
