Raised Diagonal

The next square I'm going to attempt is the Raised Diagonal on p. 136 in ... you guessed it The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet.

I'll give you a tip on the one I plan to do after that. Actually the next few. I intend to try to Catherine's Wheel and also a mitered square. I know there are YouTube videos on the wheel and possibly on the other as well. I'll keep you posted on that as I find info. Catherine's Wheel is on p. 137 and mitered square on p. 126 of the photo guide. After that, I am thinking I will work in the mesh stitch section. There are some pretty things in there.

I don't have anything to show you today as I haven't begun the squares yet. I had a hook incident last night which put me off a bit. Broke my fave hook. Hubby repaired it and we will see how it does. More details at Crafty Corral on that.

I might also mention that if you are new to crochet, you can get a headstart on some thing it took me a while to learn by reading Lily Chin's book - Lily Chin's Crochet Tips & Tricks: Shortcuts and Techniques Every Crocheter Should Know
I have so enjoyed this book. It's small so easy to carry around with you for a quick read of a point or two.

Another book I think would be useful to have in your crochet library, and which I just purchased myself, is All About Crochet: The Dictionary of Crochet Stitches and Techniques. When you have a question about a term or procedure, this will be a handy book to have around. I'll post a longer review when I receive my copy.

I apologize to those who read both blogs and get a repeat of info. I know I need to choose one or the other, but for now I am concentrating on squares and new patterns here at The Crochet Cabana Blog with the odd bit of info I want to be sure you have if you need it.

Hope to have some photos later in the week.

Happy crocheting!
