Taking a short posting break from the world of Harry Potter today, just here on the blog, the work is fast and furious in the workshop. Today, I am going to share a crochet project that I have started. I have never done a Crochet-A-Long (CAL) or Kint-A-Long or anything “along” before which is what makes this so much fun. This particular CAL I am following is the Creative Crochet Workshop Crochet A Block 2017. I will fully admit that the thing that drew me to this project were the colors. Since I don’t know what this will look like at the end but I just love the colors.
We are a month in and I have completed all four blocks. Nothing has been blocked yet so they are a little wonky but my blocking board is currently being used as a chess board. The examples were done with a very nice looking DK weight yarn called Elle Pullskein, but this is hard to find here in the US. I had a bit of Rose Shocking yarn left from my giant granny blanket so I choose the Vanna’s Choice Worster Weight for this project.
Vanna’s Choice Lion Brand Yarn
- Dark Grey Heather
- Silver Heather
- Rose Shocking
Here is my take on Block One – Spiked Flower Granny Square
Block Two – Spiked Row Granny Square
Block Three – Split Granny Square
Block Four – Four Square Granny Square
I am still not totally sold on the Split Square but I figure I can always leave it out at the end if I really don’t like it.
I will try to share these as I go along. This has been really fun so far. One area that this is helping me in is the process of sewing in ends. That is not one of my favorite tasks and I often am left with hundreds to do at the end of a project. These blocks work up fast and there is nothing else after so I can sew those babies in now.
That is all for tonight! Harry Potter Party will resume soon. Projects that are upcoming are the Monter Book of Monsters, Golden Snitch, Cornish Pixies, and a Nimbus 2000.
