Pattern: #189 Chocolate Box from 200 Crochet Blocks for blankets, throws, and afghans by Jan Eaton
Hook used: H
Finished Size: 8"
Colors Used: I love this yarn's Grey Beard, Sungold, hot rose and peacock.
I love this square! However, this was one of those patterns that I was not in the right mindset to start and got frustrated when I started the pink section. So I made chocolate box and came back to this one the next day. Then I felt like an idiot for not reading the directions right the day before ha. Oh well, it's beautiful and I will definitely be making this one again one day.
I've found that working a week ahead like I am is working out great for me. I'm still doing a granny a day only I don't sharethem until a week after it's finished. That way I can photograph and edit all of them on the weekend and get my posts ready. I highly reccommend this for anyone completing a 365 project that you will be sharing publicly. I don't feel pressured to get everything done in one evening. I make my square, call it a night and worry about everything else on Saturday or Sunday.
So there's blizzard talk for tomorrow in these parts. That means I need to go to Hobby Lobby tonight to stock up for an all day crochet-a-thon. :) I have a few Valentine's Day projects to make that I can't wait to share! Also get ready because tomorrow is February 1st and I have a lot of heart granny patterns to share.
