Still going strong with my block-a-month afghan squares!
My favorite square this month is definitely the 12” Kirton square by Jacqui Goulbourn. For this square, the corners are made with long chain spaces that are twisted together to look braided. I think that’s so cool and want to make something else (scarf? hat?) with that detail. I’m using Malabrigo Rios for my afghan, and this square is in colorways Glazed Carrot, Teal Feather, and Purple Mystery.
The other 12” block for October is Cheerful Echinacea by Sari Åström. I made it in colorways Sunset, Lettuce, and Whale’s Road.
And the 6” block for October is called Spinosa and is by The Loopy Stitch. I used colorways Sunset, Teal Feather, and Whale’s Road.
I’ve planned out my colors for the rest of the blocks for the year (also – how are there only 2 months left in 2017??), so I think I may start assembling after I finish the squares for November. Then in December, I’m hoping to have a finished afghan before I go home for Christmas. I should also start thinking about if I want to do any sort of crochet-a-long afghan next year. I have been feeling pretty inspired by Amy from the Stranded Podcast‘s granny stripe blanket, so maybe I’ll do something like that. Other ideas?
