I'm just learning how to crochet. I'm going to do a granny square afghan for my first project. I'm using Lion Brand Wool Ease in three colors to match my living room. I like that I can crochet while watching TV in the evening. I have about 20 squares done and I'm not exactly sure how many I will need. I'm starting to sew the squares together now instead of leaving all the sewing for the end of the project.
