(This post is part of my Year of Projects: Crochet Master Class series. You can read the other posts in this series here.)
I was under the weather this week, and I’m taking the Craft Yarn Council Certified Instructor’s Program in Knitting this weekend (14 hours of fun, preceded by many days of swatch making), so I haven’t made as much progress with my bullion stitch blocks as I would like. I did share an update on Wednesday.
I finished one Poppy Bullion Block, with several added black borders to bring it up to 12″.
I’m so excited that Heartmade Blessings only wants 12″ squares with all of the ends unwoven. Yes, folks, you heard that right. Apparently, they received too many donations where people just cut off the yarn when they were finished, tied a little knot, and then everything unraveled later. So since they can’t tell if your ends are woven in or don’t exist at all, they ask you to leave a 6″ tail at the start and end of every color. This has admittedly made me more interested in blocks with multiple color changes .
I hope to have a lot more to show for my bullion stitch explorations next week.
