COLOURFUL CROCHET AND CRAFT

Friday, 11 April 2014

Its starting to look a lot like a Baby Groovyghan CAL(6)

For those of you joining in now (or who may need to catch up) here is a little photo story of what we have done so far (I have included the links to the previous posts to make referencing easier for you):

WEEK 1 - RAINBOWS AND DAISIES SQUARES

I chose some shockingly bright colours in Mirage 4ply - and made some shockingly bright Rainbows and Daisies Squares

WEEK 5 - ZOOTY OWL SQUARE

A little tutorial to make a Zooty Owl Square, and a twist on the "Circles in Squares" from Week 4.

We also crocheted 1 stripe onto the top of the row of Rainbow Half Grannies;  1 stripe onto the top and 1 stripe onto the bottom of the Circles in Squares Grannies

If you have a bit of catching up to do, don't feel too badly!   I have to admit that I also am a bit behind (embarrassed giggle) - I am working on so many exciting WIP's - there are just not enough days in the week!

We have already worked 1 stripe onto the top of the row of Rainbow Half Grannies;  1 stripe onto the top and 1 stripe onto the bottom of the Circles in Squares Grannies

This is where I have fallen slightly behind - I did mention that the Zooty Owls were quite a bit of work and so, alas, I have not completed my Zooty Owl row.    But this is what mine looks like so far:

There are a good few hours of crochet work involved to get up to this point, so I don't think I am going to load another row of squares onto this week!   I am still trying out a few ideas for the next row anyhow- not quite sure which one(s) to pick yet!

I have a fair bit of catching up to do - so that is what I shall be doing for the rest of the afternoon.

Hope you enjoy crocheting along with me!

If you do notice any errors please do not be shy to point them out - always a bit difficult to proof one's own work!
