This time it took me until June to finish the May Ravelry 2008 block a month CAL blocks, but finally they are done! The pattern is Flower Burst. As usual, the yarn is Bendigo Woollen Mills Cotton 8 ply, crocheted with a 4.5 mm hook. Although the patterns are for 12 inch blocks, because of the yarn weight and hook size I am using mine end up as 9 inches. In Lime:
and in Fennel (which was yarn meant for a different project, but now it’s made it’s way into this one):
This is how the squares are coming along so far (including a sneak peek at one of the June squares done in Fennel):
I’m about to introduce another colour – Heather, a lovely purple – since it was also in the stash (also originally intended for a different project). Hopefully it will tone nicely and balance out the intensity of the blue.
And the Multicoloured square?
I’m only going to do one more block in this yarn which will be six, enough for a small doll blanket. Then I’ll deliver the rest of the yarn to the op shop. It hurts my eyes, and isn’t worth the effort. Lesson learned – I prefer to crochet in quality yarns, preferably not acrylic, no matter how little it costs.
