Just popping by to show you what I've been working on over the last few days. Firstly I finished a couple more blocks from the 2012BAMCAL. I'm going to call it a day with these colours now. I have enough of them to make a small lap blanket and hopefully somebody will take a liking to it. I've learnt a lot though and am all signed up for the 2013BAMCAL and the Melinda Miller Designer Showcase Sampler (hereafter referred to as the MMDSS), I like participating in these as it's interesting to see all the different squares emerging. Yesterday I sewed in ends and blocked three new squares.
Tangled Web Afghan Block. I included a ring of gold as my homage to The Hobbit which I went to see last week and enjoyed. The colours are listed on my project page. I am not limiting myself on colours for these ones as I have a scrappy afghan in progress which they will become part of.
These are my final squares from the 2012BAMCAL..
Moroccan Tile Afghan Square, some people made a beautiful job of this one, I wasn't too happy with mine but actually it looks fine with the others.
Crown Jewels square. I didn't work the outside edge of this one properly, I can't remember why now, but I loved making the inside section and plan to do this one again properly sometime soon.
I also wanted to take a moment to show you the gorgeous gift sent to me by Kate from Granny Taught Me To Crochet...
Just to mention as well a giveaway over at Crafty in the Med. I have the book so I would love to win the pretty yarn. It is such a lovely blog, well worth an explore if you have a little time.
I hope you are all enjoying the early stages of 2013. I'm waiting for a yarn delivery, I love it when a big squishy packet of yarn arrives in our porch. Right, back to the knitting.
