V Stitch Granny Square

V Stitch Granny

Today’s Square: V Stitch Granny Square
Size: 4 inch
Pattern By: Manda Proell
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic. RHSS Turqua.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: I started out with the pattern as written but on round three ended up going my own way because the pattern seemed kind of wordy. I added a round of DC before the last round to make it a 4 inch block. Pretty simple.

Floral Overlay

Floral OverlayToday’s Square: Floral Overlay
Size: 6 inch
Pattern By: James G Davis
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic. TLC Essentials Red Plum, RHSS Sierra, TLC Heathers Lt. Denim.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: Holy guacamole, this is a fiddly square!! It’s worked in two pieces–the flower and the loopy part are one piece. Then you make the back part and while you’re making it you attach the loopy parts (which contain picots, too) on two different rounds. I probably wouldn’t make this one again, and I wish I’d chosen a more contrasty color for the loopy parts. From the “50 Fabulous Crochet Squares” book. To make things worse, all three skeins of yarn knotted on me during the crochet–even the yarn didn’t like it. I was so tired when I finished it I couldn’t even get a decent pic.

Daisy 12 Petal

Today’s Square: Daisy 12 Petal
Size: 10 inch
Pattern By: Jacqui Goulbourn
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic. RHSS yellow; TLC Heathers Lt Denim; mystery yarn ivory, sky blue.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: A slightly involved square but the pattern is well written. The center is slightly dimensional and I like how it’s constructed. It could use a round of SC around the edge to stabilize it a little, but since I was testing it, I stopped where the pattern stopped.

Easter

2014basketclosFor every year of my life (and I think I’ll just keep that number to myself right now) my mom has made me an Easter basket. I have every one of the baskets still. Many of them I use around the house, and some are just decorative and adorn a shelf.

This year I had imagined there would be no basket considering my dad’s passing and all of the governmental crap she’s had to deal with in the last two weeks (don’t get me riled up again…). But, there was indeed a basket. Replete with my favorite Peeps, the obligatory chocolate bunny, and plenty of other chocolate treats.

You know, I think I got lucky in the celestial lottery with my parents. Happy Easter everyone!

Gimme a J!

The Letter J

Today’s Motif: Uppercase Crochet Motifs
Size: 4.5 inch
Pattern By: Jenny R. Brown
Hook: H
Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver Sierra
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: I was gifted this pattern from someone on Ravelry. It’s cool!! You can make letters very easily. The pattern is well written and presented. The PDF is linked so you can just click on the letter you want and it goes right to the pattern. Very well presented. I think my J came out pretty well. It curls a bit but once it’s attached to something it’ll be just fine. If you used a small hook and crochet thread you could make some cool looking word things.

96 of 99

96 of 99Today’s Square: 96 of 99
Size: 7 inch
Pattern By: Carole Prior
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic. RHSS Turqua; mystery yarn green, magenta, lavender, cadet blue.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: Another hexagon motif. Simple to make and would be easy to make larger (or smaller). I added a round of solid DC all around just to firm it up a little. It ruffled slightly so next time I’d leave out a couple of DCs on the corners to flatten it. From the “99 Granny Squares to Crochet” book.
