Looks like the lace crochet gods got the message and decided to meet me halfway.  I do like the solid half of this block.  I can't help but feel the lace part runs the risk of getting little fingers and toes caught in it, or snagged on a corner of a piece of furniture, ruining the stitchwork.  Which would make me cry.  This blanket is HOURS worth of work.

Even though it doesn't say to do so in the pattern, I could have done with going down a hook size as the square is a little bit larger than my other ones.

Apart from that, there were no major issues with the stitches and - round of applause please - I cracked my first sub-2 hour block (not counting my granny square at the beginning; I've had a great deal of practice with them over these past few months).

Degree of difficulty: Easy
Time taken: 1.5 hours
Result: I'm 50/50 on this one.


  1. I love how you have found the number in so many different languages!

    1. Got to keep the non-crocheters out there interested somehow. Languages really interest me but the Cyrillic script just confounds me - how can a B sound like a v? Still, it's quite beautiful, don't you think?


I love that you take the time to comment. Except for spam, not loving that. I no longer allow comments from anonymous users for that reason.
