The ladies at my knitting group (oh yes, I joined one!) suggested going round and doing a border to even our the edge a bit, but with my friend's baby due on 3rd February and not one square of its blanket
completed started, I have more pressing issues! Plus, you can't really notice the wonk when it's tied around my neck!
Onwards and upwards with the Granny Squares!!!

The Finished Article: Wonky Purple Scarf
Hello and Happy New Year! First day back at work today and Christmas feels a very long time ago now. Just wanted to share with you my wonderful and wonky crochet scarf, which I finally completed on Sunday.
I have been working on this since August/September when I started my 4 Simple Goals challenge - I wanted to learn to crochet and started with Double Crochet, and it just sort of (eventually) became a six-foot scarf.
It's so wobbly it sort of looks like you're viewing from above an anaconda that's just eaten a goat. I had trouble in the beginning somehow dropping and picking up stitches with practically every row but once I got into my groove and remembered to do a chain at the end of each row I was OK.
I even managed to work out a way of holding the hook and crocheting (rather fast!) without having to pick at the wool with my fingers, which I'm very pleased about. My stitches became a lot neater and more even towards the end ... but they were also a lot less tight, meaning that one end of the scarf is about double the width of the other. Sigh.
