On my hook

In my World of Crochet.

Crochetville Crochet Greek Games

We had our own form of the Olympics on Crochetville. It was the Crochet Greek Games and everybody that wanted to participate had to pick a project that would be a challange for themselves and get it done from starting when the opening ceremony started to putting down the hook when the flame went out.

I picked a filet that I designed for my challange. I had only done filet one other time and that was a long time ago. While I don’t think it’s that hard. The project turned out to be way bigger than I thought and I also had to spend a day tweeking my pattern I made but I got it done and got a gold medal for it. I might even win a prize!

 

It turned out to be 34 x 37 inches and used up 1500 yards of size 10 thread.

I don’t know what I’ll do with it since it came out so big LOL!! I did make a couple mistakes in it and will have to try to fix them but for now it’s done. This made my eyes go cross from all the open spaces in it. LOL.

Been a slow crochet month for me.

 It’s been a slow crochet month for me.

I got 2 of the Tunisian blocks for the CAL on Ravelry done. I finished my May one and got the pattern up on my crochet ramblings blog and whipped up a June block. Now to start my July block.

May Tunisian block.

I took the photo of the block upside down so the picture is upside down to show the block right side up. 🙂 I’ve posted this pattern on my pattern blog. I like how the variegated in Tunisian comes out but it drives me a little nuts that you can tell where I had to join the new yarn. I don’t know why the pattern of the yarn changed so much but there it is. I might suggest making sure you start with a full skein so that doesn’t happen. 🙂

 

June Tunisian block

This one was real easy to make but I made it a little too small so I’ll have to add some border to the sides and hope it looks alright in the finished afghan.
