Crochet Statistics...

Now that I have finished hand quilting my wonky houses quilt I've been able to do a little more crochet at night and make my pile slowly grow some more.

These photos were taken outside this evening and I love the way the sun has caught the corner of this colourful pile of crochet goodness.

I have 5 more of this size square to do. I have started to run out of the yellow when I began making this size which is why there is only one square with a tiny yellow centre. Every time I went to buy more wool I would forget which colour I needed and consequently have lots of white, orange and blue skeins. Tomorrow I must remember it is yellow I need. 


So 5 more squares to go doesn't sound too bad does it, but in total I have '157' to go! Yes that number is a little daunting although to make it sound better they do get smaller in size as I go along so I should be able to whip up a few of the smaller squares in one evening. I'm still really enjoying working on this project, the portability of it and putting together different colour combinations. I know I will be definitely doing more crochet projects in the future.

You're doing so well, Catherine! It's going to be so colourful and wonderful. I know that my crocheted ripple blanket has quickly become the family favourite. It's just the way it clings to you. It's like being wrapped in a hug or something, hee.
