(see what I did there?)
One of my long-term aims to become confident with crochet – I can knit, I have a maths degree for crying out loud, it can’t be that hard, right? So far I haven’t managed it, though.
But it would be really good to have an easy project going that I can pick up and do bits of here and there when I need to unwind (oh dear … pun not intended). Especially when under stress! I’ve been working on my knitted log cabin blanket recently – I’ve finished another 3 squares for it, and am joining them on to one side at the moment. But soon I’ll run out of yarn for that, and as it’s fairly pricey stuff I won’t be buying more for a while … so I need another project.
Enter the crocheted square. I want something I can do with a minimum of fuss and with a minimum of colour changes (I don’t like weaving in ends), so when I came across yarnberry’s humble crochet square I decided that that was the way to go. I’ve got some blue yarn in various shades kicking around (picked up at a charity shop) so that’s what I’m working with. Wish me luck!
