I spent some time last night crocheting with my mom. She's here visiting and recuperating from a recent knee surgery. She knows how to crochet, but she only knows the very basics. She's been wanting to learn how to make a granny square, so I printed out this pattern http://debscrafts55.blogspot.com/2007/12/never-ending-blanket-square.html and proceeded to show her how to make the square. Since it's a continuous square, she won't have to keep changing things up. She can just keep on going, row after row.
