Color is one of the elements of knitting and crocheting that lots of us struggle with. We know what we like. We know the things that make us go WOW! But ask us to go to our LYS and stand before the multitude of options and pick out the 4 or 5 colors we want to use to make that amazing afghan and we answer you with blank stares. It's so hard! I can stand in the yarn section of a department store and struggle for hours. Imagine what happens when I'm someplace like Webs (an awesome store in person and on-line). I'm overwhelmed, intimidated and volley between a drooling catatonic state and scurrying about from display to display like a meerkat after a double espresso! That's why I've come to rely on books like this one and the many others out there to guide me. Even then it can be a challenge. Because you know that the store will have an overstock on four of the colors that you need, but the fifth one will have been discontinued!
That's when you go to the sale bin and soothe yourself with something luxurious! Anyway, back to my thread squares! What do you think of my frilly granny circle? I got the colors almost spot on, except I used maroon instead of a darker pink. Can you see the mistake I made? It's in the blue round. Instead of 3dc's in the center of each petal, I did (dc, ch 1, dc). Oops! I realized it after I finished, but I wasn't about to do it again. Thankfully it was a happy mistake that you probably never would have noticed!! I thought it was pretty cool how my thread granny ended up being the exact same size as the picture in the book. They're about 2 3/8 x 2 3/8 inches (6 x 6 cm). I don't know how big the squares are if you make them in worsted wool and an H hook, but I imagine they're about 4 inches give or take.
Thanks so much for stopping by and spending a bit of your day with me!
