SIBOL Squares

I love my crocheting. Unlike my hideous attempt at quilting last week, I find crochet much more soothing. It is not a major drama if stitches need to be undone, just pull a thread and re do it. Fortunately these squares were nice and easy.

These are the granny squares I have crocheted for  Sue for SIBOL. They should be winging their way to the UK next week, after I have sewn all the ends in. The purple one has a nice fluffy yarn between the dark purple and lilac, hard to see it in the photo.

I like the blue one below, a very pretty pattern, even though it is sideways in the photo.

All of these patterns are from 200 Crochet Blocks.

I also made this one below.  I was going to say pretty much the ugliest crochet square I have seen, but in the photo it doesn't look so bad. Believe me though, everyone who has seen it has looked at it, looked at me and then looked at it again, and said you are not sending that are you?  So I am not sending it. 

So I still have the odd disaster in crochet, but it doesn't make me want to do violent things.  I don't feel like destroying it in a very painful manner.  Although if my snowball blocks end up in an "art installation piece" this could sit nicely on the top.


  1. I like that dark blue one best. Can't you teach me to crochet by phone or something?

    You're the crochet queen.

    Now get cracking on those snowball blocks.

    (I will have some pics later of yesterdays other efforts)

  2. I love that book, lots of great patterns and easy to use. I can't see anything wrong with the block you dislike - strange how a photo can make things look different!
