CAL – Crochet ALong
I figured what the heck,
I’m crazy anyway I’ve already got a ton of other things to crochet, what’s another project?
We are going to crochet through 200 Crochet Blocks for Blankets, Throws, and Afghans by Jan Eaton. I got my copy!
I’m already a month behind (they started in September), but there’s no time limit (that I could see). All the participants are aiming to do about 3 blocks a week. I’m going to start at block one and work through.
It may say 200 blocks, but this is a lie. Jan Eaton counts color variations as a different block. What kind of bullshit is that? As I’m already going to be using different colors from the book, there are only 128 squares.
The theme is “cottage garden.” Based on that I decided on these colors:
When I think cottage garden, I think GREEN, because of that every block should have at least some green on there so I bought an excess of green skeins. I have two shades of green: Kelly and Lime. I flipped through the book, and the most colors any square had was eight. It was very difficult deciding on the 8th colors, but finally decided on white for some neutral color balance.
Stay tuned as I’ll be posting the different blocks on here!
