More Stuff to Post

I know, terribly creative post title LOL

This month’s TUSAL:

Lots in there this month.  Some fabric bits, yarn ends and kit leftovers.

I’ve started the Bernat Mystery Crochet-Along 😀

I’m not using the suggested yarn.  Instead, I’m using two strands of Caron’s Simply Soft and haven’t had any trouble with the gauge.  To be honest, I usually ignore gauge on crocheted afghans, but given these are squares that will eventually need to be sewn together, I crocheted my very first gauge swatch.

Here are the squares so far:

Clue 1 – light blue – Alternating single and double crochet

Clue 2 – dark blue – Granny square (had to get creative here to get to an 8″ square.  I added a round of single crochet around the edge to make up the half inch I was missing)

Clue 3 – green – V-stitch  (still have four more squares to do to complete this clue)

I also have white and light grey for my color palette.

Still owe a progress picture for my Masquerade start, but I’ll hold on to that until later in the weekend 🙂
