I am trying to make use of my many crochet books. The one I am diving into right now is "Beyond The Square, Crochet Motifs" by Edie Eckman. This book is filled with crocheted triangles, squares, circles, hexagons and more. It is a granny blanket heaven. I am just starting to get interested in motifs and granny "squares". I think they are beautiful, but I am not a fan of weaving in ends and these motifs require a lot of weaving ends in.
Something that I am really enjoying, is learning and practicing stitches that I don't normally do. I have seen them, but I don't normally incorporate them into my work....but I will from now on.
The squares in the picture above is what I have made so far. The square on the far left is made of Popcorn stitches. The square on the far right is the Leaning Tower stitch. What am I going to do with these? Well you will just have to wait and see. (Unless I don't like it, then you may never see.)
