50 Fabulous Crochet Squares

One of the many wonderful gifts I got for Christmas was a copy of 50 Fabulous Crochet Squares (Leisure Arts #4420) from my husband. I have been participating in more exchanges and one of the requests is often squares for friendship afghans. Having a variety of patterns to choose from keeps me interested in making them and makes the afghans more varied for the recipients receiving them.

I had not considered making an afghan square Christmas afghan for myself. However, having seen the Christmas Wreath square, the Catskill Mountain Rose, and a few others, I am tempted to think about starting one. I have quite a few other projects in my crochet cue and I have promised myself to dig out my knitting loom DVD's and see if I can master that this winter. I also need to learn to use the Knook I got for Christmas as I also received a couple of pattern books to try out with it. Therefore, the Christmas afghan may be a dream for the future. However, with more swaps and exchanges coming up, I am sure to put the squares in this book to good use.

Hi Bailey. I tried the Knook. I got all jazze and up about it, bought it. But it just doesn't do it for me. Let me know what you think once you've had a chance to play around with it. Maybe if I'd picked it up before I learned to knit. Who knows... Sounds like you had a rather crafty Christmas!!
