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

Karen, here is my knitted diagonal in variegated yarn. I cracked open a brand new ball of yarn for this square so had no idea how it was going to work up. I'm thinking it would look rather nice in a clever hat ..
