Tidbits : Granny Squares

baahar from the European Street Team (EST) on Etsy had a great idea ! All EST members could make a collaborative granny square blanket, where all participating members would send a square or two for her to put together as a blanket, to be sold for some charity organization.
I immediately told here I am in, because I liked the idea of this patchwork blanket! I studied her description of the granny squares pretty intensive, because it's already many years ago that I last had a crochet hook in my hands. And after many attempts, I finally managed to make 3 squares, which, if I may say so, is a major achievement for a non-crocheter as I am.
Here they are:

They will be posted first thing monday morning !
