Is granny square?

I fight it all the I really want to invest in creating a granny square afghan? Granny squares? Isn't that cliche, old, and tired? That's what I've always thought. It reminds me of a red, white and blue granny square vest my mom made for my sister and I in the mid 70s. Groovy....

Apparently Granny Squares are all the rage again in everything from purses, pillows to afghans again. So why fight it. Granny Squares it is. Take a look!
