Granny Squares Re-Done

I love this granny square afghan I happened to see on the CRAFT blog.

In the dim and distant past I knew how to crochet, and this could inspire me to try it again. I love the varying sizes of the squares, like a crazy quilt. I am trying to think of a technique for knitted squares that would be similar in look, but so far it evades me.

It also reminds me a little of the fabulously creative and evocative Quilts of Gee's Bend, born of necessity and grown into a unique art form. I saw their exhibit at SF's new de Young museum in the fall, and they were amazing in so many ways. If you get a chance to see this exhibit I would highly recommend it.
