crochet catch up
Thanks to sitting and watching the Olympics with the family, I am almost completely caught up on my granny squares for our sampler. It feels really good to pick up the hook again and work on these after several weeks off.
Week 9– I love this one's 3d effect, an easy square to do.
Week 11– Crocheted popcorn stitches are so satisfying to make for some reason.
Week 13– This one has a little something going on with the cream stitch rows (it was the first one, you know, the one where you work out how to make the square). The square on the right actually uses 2 different shades of gold yarn. The difference is subtle, but it was fun to try a tonal version.
Once I got started in catch up mode, I was able to do these in just a few evenings, so don't worry if you feel like you've fallen behind. I tried Week 12 and my first attempt was a hot mess. That one is tricky because you have 4 strands of yarn (each color you use in the square) all dangling at the same time. I am hoping to try it again tonight.
Look for a new granny square assignment on Friday!
