Rounds 1-4 are done. I must say that I  was a little lost at first, but after a bit of searching, I found some helpful videos on YouTube.

Until tomorrow.

Wool-Eater: Day 1

I thought I would begin with the oblong version, but the beginning section was a little tedious to work considering I have never done this stitch before. So I'm going with the original square version.

My materials list:
H hook (5.00mm)
Red Heart Super Saver yarn in Aran, Coffee, and Turqua
Large eye blunt needle

The terminology is in Australian format. So all DTRs are actually TRs and all DCs are actually SCs and a cluny is a cluster.

As of the moment of this posting I have one complete section done.

Until tomorrow.

Wool-Eater CAL with Sarah London

I'm so late to this party, but I am happy to join along. Sarah London is hosting a CAL (crochet-a-long) of her famous Wool-Eater blanket (so named because it eats up yarn as it goes) on her blog here. There you will find instructions for the square version and the oblong version of the blanket. She has also posted the schedule she will be following as she goes. I am wavering from that schedule by posting on Mondays instead of Wednesdays. My notes will be posted here and in my Ravelry project page.
