June BAMCAL squares

It is SO easy to get behind with things!  I’m still working on getting my BAMCAL squares up to date.  I’m almost there, with just one of the August squares left to do.  Oh, tomorrow is the last day of August – then there will be another two squares for September.  Oh well!  As always, these are worked in Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 8ply with a 4.5mm hook.

First up is the June square Moroccan Tile.  This one has worked up much better than I’d anticipated.  My colour placement often occurs fairly randomly now; I don’t always work out in advance what colours will go where in the square, but instead I just let it evolve as I crochet away.  That can be a good or a bad thing.  This time it was good.

The June Filler square is Crown Jewels, a free Ravelry download.  I love the way that this one crocheted up as well! It is another example of where I let the colour changes evolve as I went along rather than pre-planning them.

Check out those popcorns!  Look at that texture!

So there you go, June BAMCAL squares all done! I’ll be back later with the July squares, and hopefully not much later with the August ones. This is going to be a terrific blanket, if I do say so myself! But I’m only just over halfway there in terms of the number of squares (and then there will be the joining and the edging…)
