Yarn Along

Happily joining Ginny and the gang over at Small things for this weeks Yarn Along.
I had fun working out this square, it's for a group project to mark a special occasion, a secret for now ; ) 
How to turn a circle into a square...another crochet mystery solved!
The pattern ended before my square was big enough so I had to improvise on the last few rows and make up the increases which I'd say are not perfect but I am learning, learning. 
I've become such a slacker when it comes to blocking.
But thinking how lovely it would be to make a small blanket or throw from these squares and what fun to be had playing with the colours... the best part : )

Happenstance: The Husband's Story - The Wife's Story

Still reading this Carol Shield's novel, and so far despite the wonderful cover art, I'm just not feeling it!

Thanks so much for visiting and for all your lovely comments on last week's post which I so appreciate. 
Look forward to seeing what you're working on x M


  1. Your crochet is just so beautiful and you have me wanting to learn how to crochet too.

  2. That square is amazing! I just love the colors.

  3. I always looking forward to seeing what you're up to - always inspirational, and always lovely colours.
    Thank you!

  4. I agree, playing with colors is the best part, but the hardest part too. That is very thin thread your crocheting with. What patience you must have!

  5. i'm interested now to see what this will become. your work is beautiful mia, and i imagine how much fun you'll have choosing the colors for the blanket you make. i slack on blocking sometimes too, but oh when it happens, its magic.

  6. That color blue just pops out. I too think these color combinations would make a wonderful blanket!
