In a Spin Week 45

Hi folks 🙂

Our Op Art squares are so effective! Love it 🙂

By me 🙂

How cool does this look! (Not a cal participant, but its so cool I had to share) Click the pic to see details of the projectThis week we are doing a lovely flowery Granny – it is spring where I am, so its appropriate for me at least LOL. The square is called Granny Square in Bloom by Natasja King.  Natasja has a really pretty blog called Crochetime. (In my head  am MC Hammer saying “STOP!” It’s Crochetime!”)


We are making a 15 cm (6″) block this week, so you know what to do. 🙂

Block 47 UK Version

    Hi there
    I’m in Australia, so I use UK terms for crochet. The pattern above says it’s in UK terms, but it looks the same as the one using US terms (plus it’s using SC, which I think is my UK double??)
    Anyway, I’m a bit of novice, so I could be just completely confused myself, nothing to do with the terms!!
    Really like the squares, so I’m keen to figure it out!
