"A Granny square is a piece of square fabric produced in crochet by working in rounds from the centre outward. Granny squares are traditionally handmade. They resemble coarse lace. Although there is no theoretical limit to the maximum size of a granny square, crocheters usually create multiple small squares (called "motifs") and assemble the pieces to make clothing, purses, Afghan blankets and other household textiles."
Before the workshop I bought my Mum & I beautiful crochet hook holders in preparation. The one above was from Stitch and Kitsch on Etsy.

Hopefully, a year from now, I'll have crocheted enough Granny squares to create a nice big Afghan blanket. I'm going to need about 100 more squares so it's going to be a busy year! Watch this space...
