Forgotten Crochet Project

I think some time back in January I had picked up on these crochet squares which were planned for a small lap throw.  At that time they were a UFO and I was trying to resurrect it.  Needless to say, as this post title suggests, that was a short-lived resurrection and they were packed away with good intentions never quite being realised.  (I think it might have had something to do with all the thread ends that needed sewn in - seriously unfunny amount to be stitched in.)

See what I mean?

Last week, as I took stock of various projects in various states of progress, this one started screaming at me - "just five more squares to crochet, sew in some thread ends and joining, that's all we need!" 

So, here are those five more squares crocheted and blocked and all the ends sewn in.

Sometime after the hols I will add them to the squares which have been waiting and create a little leg warming lap throw.

In keeping with being a forgotten project, this one was started so long ago that I cannot even remember what its original purpose was - could have been a baby gift for a child that can eat steak now for all I remember!  How terrible is that?! Must do better (which is why I've created my wee stitching plans page to keep on top of and try not to forget things in the future)!

Anyway, there is now a layout planned (excuse the drawing)

and hopefully this will look halfway decent when it's all together.  If crocheting is your thing and you're interested, I would really recommend 200 Crochet Blocks for blankets, throws and afghans by Jan Eaton which is where all of my square patterns came from.  There are lovely crochet block patterns and even design pages with suggestions for how various squares can be combined to make throws of all sizes.

Hoping to be back with further progress well before another 7 months passes!


  1. You are too fuuny! And your crochet is beautifl! I love the soft blues with the touch of pink.

  2. Hi Sarah
    I can't believe it. I have that crochet book but I've only done one square out of it so far.

  3. These squares are gorgeous. Your squares always look so flat (mine look like they've been pushed through a colander!) Jxo


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I do try to respond to every comment, but forgive me if occasionally time does not permit.
