Motif CatchAL up!

I've been a little behind in my blogging about the motifs I've been making in Beyond the Square crochet book by Edie Eckman (group on Ravelry, come join in the CAL fun!).  I finished up motif #41 pretty easily but the next one, #88, made me scratch my head a bit.  I had to refer to my Crochet Answer book, another awesome Edie resource, for help on the just wasn't  clicking with me.  Thankfully, I figured it out.  

Unfortunately, I absolutely hated this motif (#136).  The popcorn stitch was driving me nuts and I couldn't help but to think if there was an easier way to make them.  I posted on the BTS CAL wall that this motif was wrought with negative energy and frustration.  I feel so bad for the poor little motif.  It does seem to lie on my dining room table dejectedly. 

I also have come to the conclusion that I cannot work with the crappy Red Heart yarn anymore.  I've gotta search out some reasonably priced DK weight yarn.  It's odd that I don't have any DK weight.  Well, that's gonna change soon!

  1. You've just haven't blogged in a little while, period. Glad to see you're enjoying Edie's grand motifs. I really like the one you're holding in your hand.

    You know, I don't have any DK weight, either. Making things for warmer weather might change that.
