One-a Day.....Tuesday's Tallies.........

Well, it's been a while since I've joined in with Gingerbread Girl's One-a-Day but with Christmas and my holiday I haven't had time to pick up my hook. Last week though I finally got to get some done, my friend Rae bought me "200 Crochet Blocks" by Jan Eaton and so I started making one square a day from it for Stocki's Beautiful Blogger Blanket 2012, click here for more details. One of the requirements is to use 100% cotton so I used Rowan handknit cotton, I just love the colours that they do.

Waterlily

Alternate Bobbles

Interlocking Stripes


The 4th square is one I've made up myself using a variety of different stitches, this is a bit biggger than the other 3 ,measuring 18x18cm . If you fancy joining in you still have time, Jill needs them in by the 31st January.
Hopefully I'll have more time to do my ripple blanket now, I would like to finish it by the Spring but not sure whether that will be achievable the way I'm going !!!!
Thanks for looking, back soon

All of the squares are lovely, and I agree with you about the colours but the last one is gorgeous.

I love your squares. That book is brilliant. I've made loads of squares from it. I sent off my squares for the beautiful blogger blanket today. Its so exciting to see everyone's squares. I especially love your mix of stitches in the last square. Wouldn't that be beautiful in a cushion or blanket.

I love the Jan Eaton book. There's a Ravelry group (not very active but still nice for resources) for the 200 squares.

Your squares are lovely. A couple of mine are going to come from the same book, it's one of my favourite bits of calming bedtime browsing.
Beautiful colours, I can see why you love them.

Beautiful squares - and I love that book too, Judy x

Those squares are fantastic, I really like the brick one but your own one on the end is wonderful.
Your colours are lovely, really vintageish! Especially that mustard and teal colour.
I have made a few squares but need to get them off to Jill this week.

Stocki said...

Wow Debs how beautiful these squares are! You are such a neat crocheter and the colours are fantastic. I have that book too, ad strangely, like Hilly, I browse through it at bedtime... that usually keeps me awake for hours imagining what I could make though...It is going to be VERY hard to send this blanket off to the winner when it is finished! :)x
