#157 Boxed Square
Here it is in all its wibbly mid-joins ‘glory’! I did seriously consider redoing this but decided it’s going to be the ‘eccentric looking’ block in whatever it becomes. It can stand as a testament to an afternoon of good conversation, and no crochet stitch counting (!), with a friend.
#161 Daisy Chain
R5: There seems to be a ch3 instruction missing
R8: I trebled into the chain spaces as I prefer the way it looks, and let’s face it – it’s far less fiddly! It looks fine to me.
#165 Coffee and Cream
R4: Ignore the instruction to treble into 2 stitches, I’m sure this is another typo and should be dcs as for the rest of the round.
All three are 5 1/2″ square.
Are you a bit fed up with these CAL posts? I’m over it really, or feel so this week, BUT I’ve only got ten more blocks to crochet and that’s it….HuRraY!
JOINING MATTERS…….I was wondering if it’s better to continue on after the last CAL post and set about joining blocks, or shall we have a bit of a CAL holiday and save the joining for the autumn evenings? We could aim for a September start (ie a year after the CAL began…..!!!!!) Let me know what you reckon here or on the Ravelry CAL group thread.
Here’s Lynne’s Knits giveaway prize which arrived when I was here in the Little Room waffling at the end of last week’s CAL post.
I was delighted to win this book because it’s by THE Debbie Bliss, but also because I won it from Lynne. It was her patterns I found I kept gravitating to in Let’s Get Crafting Knitting & Crochet magazines as a newbie crocheter in 2011.
Come and say hi on my Facebook page!
Have a great weekend all :-D
I like the idea of starting the joining in September. Gives a bit of time to catch up with other things, plan what the final arrangement will be and generally catch one’s breath.
On block 153 tonight but getting perilously close to no yarn!
you only have 10 left! i wish i’d never read this post now :(
I’m liking the idea of joining the blocks in September :D gives me a chance to catch up (Hee Hee)
Great idea re JAL! I see why you asked me about wonky seams now. Have a look at http://www.repeatcrafterme.com- best diagrams I know for showing you where to join.
I have been hunting about looking at methods for joining and examples of granny sampler blankets for a bit of inspiration. I think it’s going to take a bit of working out… laying out – arranging – rearranging – testing joining methods….. So yep. I’ll agree with September. Gives me lots of time to finish the blocks, do more research and plenty of fiddling about. I might do a blog post about inspiration and methods of joining at some point too.
