Even though they have been getting attention my knitting projects don't look much different than last week but I do have six more Audun blocks finished.
The bin I keep them in is getting full. I have 34 of them now.
I learned the hard way this week that it takes a lot more yarn to crochet around a square than it does to knit around one. I had to pull out a whole row when I lost a game of yarn chicken. Since I am down to small balls this is going to have to take some figuring from now on.
I still have this many mini skeins of the colors I am not wild about but I think I am being too picky. Arne and Carlos said they just reach in the yarn bin and pull out a color as they work-no thought of coordination. As much as that does not feel right to me it may just be what I will have to do. As much as I love those little skeins I am not sure I want to commit another $30 for another pack of them.
I do love your crocheted pieces - so pretty. I think random is good. I would use up those mini skeins - just pulling without looking - LOL. I bet you end up with more beautiful pieces. How will you be joining them?ReplyDelete
It sure does take a LOT more yarn for crochet but I still love it. I had a difficult time with the whole just reaching in and using it thing. I did have a rule that if it was the same or a close color to the previous round, I could try again. It was still hard to give up that ocntrol though.ReplyDelete
It will look fabulous with all of those colors when you are finished. I think using them all up will look terrific!ReplyDelete
Can you take some yarn you already have and work it into the squares so you don't have to buy more?ReplyDelete
Those little squares are just so charming in their little box!ReplyDelete
Be adventurous and go with the blind-pick method on a few blocks.ReplyDelete
Just the way scrap quilts work out in the end-so will the crochet blocks--go wild! lolReplyDelete
But they are so darling! I say , Like Nancy, say go with a blind pick!ReplyDelete
Yes try a blind pick and see what happens!ReplyDelete
Crochet is a yarn suck, really it takes so much yarn as you are twisting those stitches and looping and all that. I love the reach in the bin and grab idea. I think it will all work out. Great squares so far.ReplyDelete
