Mostly random rambling about yarn, crocheting, knitting, giving back, dogs, and football. And that's just today!

Swapping: Blue Lagoon Style (Lots of pictures!)

on March 20, 2012

First off, what is a swap? A group decides on a theme, square size and how many squares to make. The swaps I have participated in are: Juliet- black, white and hot pink or red 12-inch squares, Forrest- 12-inch squares made up of of browns and greens, South Seas- light blue and greens in 9-inch squares, and Granny McPhee- swapped 100 (yes ONE HUNDRED!) granny squares. We then exchange those squares with the others in the group. I am then able to make one (or more) blanket(s) from people from all over Canada and the  U.S.

My current swap is called Blue Lagoon. The colors used- all Vanna’s Choice yarn- are Sapphire, Colonial Blue, Lime, Silver Blue, Dusty Blue and Aqua. Between 14 of us, we agreed to make 20 9-inch squares.

Are you ready for the pictures?? Here are the squares I made to send to my friends! The pictures are linked to the pattern. About half of them came from Jan Eaton’s 200 Crochet Blocks book and the rest are free online patterns.
