A Good Start…

At the start of the year Rinku n I decided that we should focus on crochet. Its a different story that we decided the very same thing last year… and then spent most of the year ignoring it. We spent a few minutes remembering this, and decided to make this year different.

Having decided that, we pulled out our needles and yarn and sat down to figure out this year’s Crochet Block Of The Month. This is a group on Ravelry which gets together to work an afghan block. They also give the corresponding fillers for the block. The idea is to crochet all the blocks and/or fillers and get an afghan (or lapghan depending on how many you made) at the end of the year. Its fun, and the projects are really cool!

I haven’t really decided what to do with the ones I’ve made, but here they are:

1) January

2) February

3) March

Well, I haven’t done April, because I went ahead and made yet another project in crochet. I wanted to put the table cloth on my center table for a wash, but didn’t have anything to replace it. Now I wasn’t on keen on going back to x-stitch in a hurry, so I needed something fast, and likely to use up some of my stash.

I decided to use up the Laura Knitting cotton stash I had. So I pulled out the blues. And this is what came off my needle! <3

  1. Ha ha, I was wondering too if you had come up with a new method of crocheting using knitting needles until I saw the comment above. By the way, I bought the book 200 crochet blocks by Jan Eaton. Feel free to borrow.
