Over Labor Day weekend, we went to visit my mom. I crocheted in the car and in the evenings after dinner. The drive was six hours each way, and although I did half of the driving, that’s a lot of crochet time. I could scarcely believe that by the time the long weekend was over I had completed eight squares! That’s as many as I’ve done on this project so far, so now I have 16 finished.
On Sunday we had an oyster and crab feast at my sister’s house. We brought oysters and beer and she supplied the crabs, corn on the cob, and two fantastic desserts–rum cake and carrot cake. Yum! We all had a great time.
Without further ado, I present the squares.
#13 – Bushy Stitch
Hook size H.
The edges on this one are not straight (the end of each row is pointy), so getting the border rounds even was a bit of a challenge, but I made it work by using some double crochets and some single crochets on the first round.
#14 – Bushy Stitch
Hook size I.
This was a very easy stitch but the square didn’t want to be the right size. Tons of frogging. I went back and forth between a Prims H, I, and J, but finally settled on a Boye I.
#15 – Afghan Square
Hook size I.
During the first couple of rows I thought I must be doing something wrong because it looked terrible. But after the third row it started taking form and looking just like it should.
Bonus! My mom was about to take a whole bunch of plastic bags back to the store for recycling. I caught her just in time. Now I have six bags full to use for plastic bag crochet. Can’t wait to try it!
