BAMCAL & WIP progress

5 Jan

So it begins…..the Ravelry 2010 Block-A-Month Crochet-A-Long in my Christmasy colors. This year’s yarns are:
I Love This Yarn – aubergine, midgreen, and ivory.
I Love This Yarn – cranapple stripe (I fell in love with this yarn and had to have it….still lovin’ it)
I might even sneak in a bit of pink here and there, just for fun.

Jan 2010BAMCAL - 12"
Not a very exciting square, but OK…especially in my beautiful cranapple yarn.

EZee-Vzee Granny Square by James Davis – this is an archived pattern, posted on Ravelry.
ILTY
H hook
Notes: Added a sc border to bring it up to 12″ and changed the joins so that they meet in the corner.
An easy & quick pattern to work.
Rounds of sc or hdc can be worked in to add heft, although surprisingly it’s not a terribly flimsy square.

Jan 2010BAMCAL - 6"
This is a 6″ square that I crocheted just to be crocheting something and I grabbed the yarn closest to me…..go ahead, call me lazy. The shoe certainly fit that day! I like the square and colors, so I will probably keep making these 6″ squares in my patriotic colors and we’ll see where it goes.

Little Dahlia by Chris Simon – visit her website, YarnCrazy for the pattern
ILTY Ombre -Freedom
Vanna’s Choice – Colonial Blue
H Hook

Notes: Not the easiest or best written pattern for me. Not sure what my problem was because I generally find Chris Simon’s patterns some of the best.
No changes.

Oh yes…..that brings me to WIP progress. Let’s just say I’ll get back to ya on that, although I’m caught up on the BAMCAL and it’s only the 4th. teehee

GoodYarn News! I have a shipment on the way………… oops, laundry is beeping……

Pattern: Pumpkin Patch Square

This is an 8″ pattern. Added extra V-Stitch and finished off with dc to make a 12″ square.
Would work the corners with less stitches if doing again.

Double-Framed Lace Square

Double-Framed Lace Square

Does this lady ever get tired of doing squares? Uuuh, No.

Double-Framed Lace by Chris Simon
Yarn: ILTY pink, antique white
Hook: H

This was an unruly square, wanting to ruffle and buckle. As you can see, I have hooked it into submission. It’s a lovely, well-behaved square.

12″ by working last row in dc instead of sc.

Chris Simon has a new website (because Geocities is closing) and her patterns (free and fee) can be found at YarnCrazy Crochet World.
