421  Re: 2010 12" Squares CAL- September in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: August 30, 2010 05:37:27 PM
Where did August go?Huh I can't believe that tomorrow is September already!

Here's the September square!

It's called Dutch Square and it looks more complicated than it is. It isnt hard (and its kind of fun!) once you figure out where to put the hook. The dc groups of the white are worked into the skipped sc from the previous round and the sc, ch2, sc is worked on/around the ch 8. It makes more sense when you actually do it, but the pictures will be posted on Ravelry, and I have permission to borrow a couple to make things more clear for those who don't have a Ravelry account.

One correction, posted on the first page. Have fun with it!

Here's my most recent washcloth! It's made with Sn'C cotton and I used the pattern off of the band from some Sn'C Twists yarn. I had to adjust the number of starting chains because it would have been gigantic otherwise (I was using a larger hook than suggested). I can give a brief rundown of the pattern if anyone is interested. It was easy, quick and has a nice texture to it. It would be a great pattern for a blanket in a nice soft yarn.

I just realized that I forgot to rotate the picture before I uploaded it, so tilt your head sideways to see what it really looks like Wink

I know it's way past June, but I finally finished my Inga bag! And, I even lined it!

It's made with purple, green, pink, and brown (on the bottom) squares and joined with black.

I lined it with a purple, spotted fabric. I pretty much just made a square-bottomed lining with 2 pieces of fabric (Jordy bag style, really).

Now, I need to get back to work on my granny deconstruction/reconstruction project!

Here's my August block! The color looks a little off, but it's done in a dark teal color (RHSS) and a shade of fern (Vanna's Choice).

The square Ive picked for August is Pavo, by Chris Simon and it works up pretty quickly. it has a couple of corrections/clarifications, which I've posted on the first page.

I can't believe we're already past the halfway mark!

I've got 3 more! These are actually blocks from 200 Crochet Blocks (I'm doing this year's CAL), but I didn't want to use them in my motif blanket, so I made them in cotton to use as dishcloths instead (they'll actually be part of a gift). I used leftover yarn from an Inga bag I made (just a bit of end-weaving and a lining and it'll be finished).

Left to right: Granny Stripes (with an extra set of stripes in the middle), Four Squares (with an added border) and Bobble Stripes. I still need to weave in the ends on these, but I have over a month to do it Wink

So, I've made it past the halfway mark! Yay! We won't talk about how long it's taken me to get this far... Grin

Here are my pictures! They're not the best and I couldn't crop them since my other computer is temporarily (I hope) fried and my photo editor is on there. But at least I've finally got photos Wink

First, the ones I did in cotton: Granny Stripes, Four Squares and Bobble Stripes. I added an extra 2 rows in the middle of the Granny Sttipes and a border around the Four Squares. All 3 will be used as dishcloths.

This one is Edwardian Fancy. I had yarn in colors similar  to what she used in the book (except for the green, so I picked it up at the store), so I figured I might as well use them.

And, finally, here's Marigold. I didn't have enough of the orange or yellow to do the 3rd round of petals but, after I picked up another color of orange at the store, I decided to alternate the yellow and orange that I did have to do the outer round of petals (I carried each color around an picked it up as I needed it). Not only did I have enough for each color, I still have a little bit left of each!

I still have to weave in the ends on all of these, but at least they're stitched Grin

428  Re: 2010 12" Squares CAL- July in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: June 29, 2010 05:56:50 PM
Here's the July square! It's the Shell Around Square by Dayna Audirsch. There are a couple of minor pattern notes/corrections that I've listed in the first post.

This is a neat looking square! I really had to pay attention on Rounds 6 & 7 to make sure I didn't lose my place, but everything worked out without a hitch. She gives directions for some special stitches on the first page of the pattern (her V-stitch is a bit different than others that I've done, but you'll see why when you do Round 12... which gives the block a very cool textural element!), but it's pretty straightforward throughout. Round 12 may give you pause, but the directions are pretty clear (but holler if you need help understanding it!).

I used a K hook and my block came out to be exactly 12 inches!

ETA: Okay, I totally have vacationitis... I thought today was the 30th! Oops! Well, I'm super busy tomorrow, so I suppose it was meant to be! Wink

Here are my squares!

The colors don't show very well (at least in the thumbnails), but they are brown, pink, purple and dark green. As I was taking the pictures, I noticed that the green ones were a smidgen smaller than the rest, but they are going to be the ones along the top edge, so I don't think it'll be a big deal.

Off to start the laundry (and maybe I'll even run the dishwasher, too- then I'll really be multi-tasking Wink ) and weave in tails!

Here are my Gothic Square and Briar Rose blocks! I only did the center portion of the Briar Rose because I thought it'd look better in my motif blanket. Now, I just have to get the book from the library and do May (and June).
