Clue #2 can be found here.
This week’s clue was learning to crochet a cross on top of the existing granny squares from the first week. My mom called this “surface crochet.” I am indifferent right now to this technique. It is new to me (which makes it a little weird and scary) so I am willing to hang in there and see how it all turns out. This technique opens up the possibilities for incredible designs. True works of art! Right now I am a little sad that my squares are being convered up!
I still need to weave in my ends, but I am so behind in my weeks due to multiple illnesses in my house that I may just wait until I am caught up.
Here are some more images of Week #2 WIP:

I hope you all will following along with my progress (here or through Facebook) or sign-up yourself and post your own progress! I think this will be a great project for myself to learn and grow my skills. I am very excited to be participating in my 1st crochet along!
