 Beyond The Square ♥ Celebrations

 

 

 

 Guess what?!

 

 

 

I am down to my last

'Beyond the Square'

crochet motif!

 


That's right,

I have made 143 motifs

from one little book.

 



Heidillujah!

 

 

 

  Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs

 

 

 

 

 

You have worked your way through

a whole motif book?

 

 


Yes I have!

The book is called 'Beyond the Square' by Edie Eckman

(in case you missed that) and there are

144 motifs in it.

Cool! When did you start this little

project of yours?

 

 


I posted my first motif up back in

May 2010.

 


(the 22nd to be precise).

 You have been plugging away at these motifs

for a year & a half?!


Are you sure?


It doesn't sound like something you

would do.

 

 

 

As I said earlier,


Heidillujah!

Was it fun?


It was, and I learnt a few things too.

 

(yes, yes)

Like what?

 


That I can't crochet from written instructions;

18 months on, I still dont know the proper name for this

 

 

Step-0a


 

let alone this

 

 

Chinese_symbols_for_knit_4131_2_0

 

 

Only kidding!

This isn't a crochet symbol.

But this is

 

 

Untitled-1

 

 

I think my inability to read patterns, might be

why I can't knit.


(so nothing to do with your cack-handedness then?)

 

Maybe.

...and the other things you learnt?

 

 


Difficult looking

charts are usually very easy.

 Triangles suck.

Do you have a favourite 'Beyond the Square'

motif?

 


I don't think I have,

but I do prefer the textured ones

 


You know, the ones with


ridges,

bobbles,

sticky -pokey up

things.

 

 

 

 Like motif 26, you mean.

Precisely!

What about colours,

do you have any preferences?

 


I enjoyed working with


lilac,

orange,

yellow &

pink.


Motifs always come out 'happy shiny' 

with that combination.

 


A close second,

I guess would be the orange & jade combination.

Motif 115 always catches my eye when I look

through the gallery.

And your least favourite motif?

Triangles.

 

What all of them?!

Pretty much.

So these were the hardest to make?


No. Most of them are actually very easy to make

 


The problem is that they

never want to be triangles.

It's frustrating.

 

 

 

 

 

Beyond the Square crochet motif -  22

 

 

 

 

Okay...so the hardest to make is?

 

 

Motif 22!


I tried on 4 separate occasions to get those

bullions to work, & struck out everytime

on the second wrapped swirl.

 


Wrapping yarn 12 times around a 2mm crochet hook,

and THEN pulling yarn through the lot is not easy!

 


I call this motif,

the 'Ruiner of Saintly Patience'.

 

 

Hmmm.

 

 

 

 

Beyond the Square crochet motif -  107

 

 

 

 

I wonder what Edie has to say about that name?

 


Not sure,

I heard she lives on a tiny isolated island, far,

far away from a post office.

 

I will check for you...

Please don't.

 So, what are your plans after the last motif

is posted?

 


Drink Rootbeer!

 


and after that?


Find another 'little lengthy' project to get on with. 

I need structure in my life, or nothing gets done.

Well,

  Congratulations  on completing this one!

I look forward to hearing all about your new project.

 


 Thank you

&

Heidillujah!
