I had done granny squares in my last project and wanted to something a little different, but I also needed something easy to do, so I took a stitch from my Harmony Guides: Basic crochet Stitches and turned it into a square. I knocked up a couple and it seemed to work well.
For colours I had some Moda Vera Fauna Eclipse (the blue one in the piccy to the left) and some grey Moda Vera Amanda, but I knew I'd need some other colours to go with it. We had a girl's day out at a Spotlight store while there was a sale on and I came across the Patons Fireworks (the fuzzy pink and black swatch) and Patons Foxy in red and white. I'm not normally a pink person, but I really liked this one and ended up running around the shop looking for colours to match it. I hadn't intended to include either of them in this project, thinking I would use them for something else, but the inclusion of the blue/grey/pink yarn Moda Vera delight (top left swatch) drew everything together and I suddenly had a rug of pinks, greys and blue. I think they work well together.
The furry yarns, the Fireworks and some grey Moda Vera Jazz are proving a challenge and not a little frustrating. I've had to dump the design for the swatch from the Fireworks and just do straight stitching because it is impossible to see the stitches. Not that it will be noticable. I'm about a third of the way through the squares at the moment and still enjoying it.
