I've started an album for our squares from this Christmas Challenge. Once you've completed your challenge and posted a photo of it in this discussion, be sure to add it to the photo section so I can copy it into our album. Thank you :)

Thanks Glo - I knit and crochet, but knitting is my comfort zone. That's a great challenge - I'll have to rummage in my stash for festive colours!
Happy to do that Lucinda, thanks. x
Harrison's mom has challenged Karla :)
A holiday to Prague sounds wonderful, Harrison's mom! And this is a super challenge for Karla! I'll be anxious to see what she makes for you :) ... xo
OK, I accept the challenge, but at the moment I don´t know what to do.
Thank you Karla for the challenge, I will try!
Great to have you popping in the Forum. Thanks for starting this fun a few years ago.
Chris, you challenged me to make a square in blue. What a difficult challenge that was!!! Difficult because I simply couldn't decide which blue to use ... hahaha So I worked the Honeycomb stitch using 2 shades of blue.
Then I thought ... hm-m-m-m ... did Chris ask specifically for the honeycomb pattern or just any TC? So ... after I made the two-color honeycomb square on the left (p. 9 Beginner Tunisian Crochet), I made another one (in blue, of course) using a pattern from Beyond Beginner Tunisian Crochet, p.25 (on the right). It uses the honeycomb stitch in combination with a couple of other stitches and I love the added texture it gives.
Unfortunately, the camera does not pick up the different stitches but, trust me, they're there and a child will find them quite quickly :)
The one on the right is made with a beautiful yarn that was a gift from our Amy and I just loved working with this yarn!
I do hope these squares will meet with your approva, Chris ;))) ... xo
Oh Glo they are both beautiful! I love the sparkly blue on the right, I can see the different stitches, it looks like a Christmas tree on it’s side :)) Thank you!
Thank you, Chris. I never thought about the square looking like a Christmas tree on its side. Perhaps it is ... after Jess, Meeka and Bonnie threw a party in the living room ... hahaha ... xo
I see a blue Xmas tree as well. Gorgeous work, Gloria. Thanks.
Do you know according to Pantone BLUE is the COLOR OF THE YEAR 2020 ! You knew that, right?
So sorry, Bev :(
Thank you for bringing that to my attention, Diana. To be honest, I did not know that Blue was the COLOR OF THE YEAR 2020. I thought Blue was the COLOR OF THE YEAR every year! It certainly is in my home ... LOL
That is a very interesting article. Thank you for sharing. I always thought it was the feel of the yarn in my hands, or the warm wood of my hooks and needles that calmed me. I now think it's all that blue yarn I've been using :))) ... xo
