In recent years, I’ve loosely participated in a crochet block of the month group on Ravelry. I’ve made a few squares here and there but never really finished all of them. This year, I picked some skeins of Plymouth Encore Worsted out of the stash and I’m doing my best to keep up. Here are the squares I’ve finished so far.
January’s square is Maggie’s Square by Drew Emborsky.
March’s square is SmoothFox’s Starburst Flower Square by Donna Mason-Svara.
April’s Square is the Lace Petals Square by Chris Simon.
(February’s square isn’t playing nice with my color scheme, so I’m looking for a replacement. It’s a beautiful Pineapple Blossom square, but should really be done in a solid for the best effect.)
So far, I’m very pleased with how these are turning out. They seem to be a perfect weekend afternoon project when all I want is a little mindless crochet, some instant gratification, and (usually) some SciFi on the tube.
I’m also playing catch-up with the 2010 squares in a softer palette, so you’ll get to see a different color scheme than the one pictured above. You know I can’t do the same thing for a whole year… More squares to come in the future if I don’t get distract… oh look! Something shiny!
