#7 Corner Granny
I like this pattern so much I made two! It’s my favourite so far in fact. I might have to try blocking for the first time so these are at their future best.

#8 Popcorn Flower
Not my favourite so far. Fiddly stitch and not that impressive for the yarn that goes into making these popcorns. Is it just plain wrong to say that getting the popcorns ready for photographing felt like XXXXXXXXXXXXXX (completely inappropriate for a crochet blog so have censored myself, but it did.)
I dislike the mid row joins too. This is not going to be a pattern which is doubled, eh?

#9 Arcadia
(Introducing my new colour – yellow.) Easily made but I’m not so keen on very holey patterns though the colours are pretty. It needs block-blockety-blocking of course.

Really looking forward to #12 Fine Lines next week, it’s pretty and has an easy rating in the book.

Come and join me on the CAL (crochet along) it’s not too late, and it’s fun but not too demanding crocheting 2-3 blocks a week :-)

  1. I love your colour choices. Both of corner granny blocks look great! Im going to spend this weekend catching up on the blocks, blocking and blogging about them (that’s a lot if B’s!)

  2. Like you I loved the corner block and hated the popcorn, and the join on the side. I blogged about it . I had a look at the revelry site which looks good, but I couldn’t figure out how to get my photos on it. One day I will be a better blogger!
    Loving your colours too.

I'd love to hear from you...
