This week I've been catching up on the Moogly CAL. You might remember that I decided to do BOTH the 2022 and the 2021 CALs because I'm not insane enough. I'm doing that because I have so much of this yarn and I want to use it up. It works out to one block a week and I don't care if I get behind and don't finish this until 2023.
The block on the right is block #2 from 2022. It was a challenge, a good one. The 2021 block #2 didn't work for me. I started it 3 times and just couldn't get it so I went to the 2020 archives and picked the #1 block. I'm glad I did because I love this block and I learned a couple of new stitches.
I'm working on the 3rd blocks from each year now.
Here's one of the failed attempts at 2021 block #2. It has a lot of cross over front post double crochets but there weren't enough photos with the tutorials to really show the stitch placement for the first few rounds. I never could end up with the right number of stitches.
Here are the first 4 blocks together.
I'm also working on the wheelchair blanket. I just started the third skein and I've turned both side corners and my rows are getting shorter. This one will be wrapped up in the next week for sure. I had the opportunity to deliver some shawls and blankets on Saturday so this one will start a new donation stack in the closet.
The baby blanket yarn that I ordered arrived yesterday and I will get started on it as soon as I finish the wheelchair blanket. I'm excited to make another gingham blanket next week.

you sure do get into crochet - I haven't been in to it as much this year and still have the winter blanket to finish that I started in October i guess

You are certainly closing in on the wheel chair blanket.

You have educated me on crochet for sure. I didn't know there were so many different stitches. The wheelchair blanket is really pretty!
