I'm still here

Hello everyone. Never fear I'm still in the land of the living. Just. This flu has been very hard, even a bit scary. Especially as I'm still trying to look after the kiddies. Husband Guy has been a champ but can't really take whole days off work, he has managed to slip in a few early finishes tho so that was helpful. I am on the mend now thankfully so am just trying to keep up the positive thoughts.  Tell you what I'll be having next year tho........ the flu vac!!
Anyway I thought I'd share a little tip I picked up on instagram the other week. When crocheting granny squares, specifically large ones or blankets, alternate the direction you crochet in to prevent your work going wonky.
I can report I've had great success using this very simple tip and thought I'd pass it on. Isn't the digital world wonderful??? :)
Here are two photos of blankets I have made, one has a bit of wonk and the second doesn't as I rotated my work.

Why don't they put that in the patterns! What a great tip.

I hope you are feeling was a bad flu this year, I couldn't do anything for 2 days, hubby did it all while I just sat and watched or slept. And it still took another couple of weeks to get over it.
The rugs are looking great BTW!

EXCELLENT TIP. And perfectly timed, might I say.

(Bloody flu).

One note - some people don't like it when the "back" side of the crochet stitches show, if it can be avoided, which may be why it's not generally in the pattern this way. I don't care, and since I'm usually too slapdash to get around to blocking things, I do it your way :-)
