some of you may have seen these over on my Flickr account, i think these are called starburst but i could be wrong the tutorial i used was very easy until the last round with the join as you go so i will be joining a different way as i could not find another tutorial for it.

Beautiful colors on your baby blanket. I've been seriously considering teaching myself how to crochet. Do you think "Granny Squares" should be my first attempt at crocheting? I'm left handed, so I'm guessing, I would need to reverse the directions. Any advice?

crochet is super easy & very relaxing there is a lady on youtube who does left handed tutorials.
Granny's are the easiest to start out

Thanks for the left-hand connection. By the way, I just realized I had not joined your blog. I have your icon listed on my blog, but somehow, I failed to join as a follower....sorry about that.

I read your blog every time you post. And, I need to turn this computer off. It's almost midnite and I work tomorrow. I still have a full time job in the city.
