Granny 136, 137, 138, 139, 140, 141; Welcome Iraq and Romania; It's Caturday :)



Both Romania and Iraq visited this blog during the last 24 hours.  Welcome to both countries!

All six blocks today are the same pattern, which is from 200 Crochet Blocks.

I have gotten several variegated yarns of late, and wanted to see how they work up.  Most of these yarns are Bernat, and are acrylic yarns.The yarn was soft and wonderful, and I'd say the results vary wildly.  Interesting though!  I really like 136, 139 and 140.  141 is Deborah Norville 'Parrot', not so much.  Maybe Jimmy Buffet would like it :)

The yarn in #137 is cotton yarn from Universal Yarn.  This is, hands down, the nicest cotton I have ever worked with.  I love the color combination, which perhaps is better suited for a larger project.  I only had one skein.  The color is no longer available.  Wah!  However, I bought it at So Much Yarn in Seattle (I think I remember that at least) and hopefully they still have some.  They had a great selection of cotton yarns.  Even though they give short shrift to the crocheter and tried to talk me into coming back to take knitting lessons, I'll be back if for no other reason than that cotton!

**** Just visited the So Much Yarn website and guess what?  The Friday Knitting group is now the
Friday Knit and Crochet group.  Must have heard me thinking!****


Since it is Caturday today, here are a couple of photos of Mr. Bernard being sweetly cute.  He's a big hunk of male kitty, so  I don't let him hear me say that!

He considers it his duty to 'help' me with my crochet projects.  He has pretty much given up trying to eat the yarn, thankfully.  This will be a great savings on the vet bills, so way to go, Mr. Bernard.

Caturday was dreamed up by  Drop on by, link up, and post photos of your own kitty :)

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, y'all!


  1. Mr Bernard is looking smashing as usual. You are a machne with those squares!!
