more squares and yo yos

Three more 6" squares completed.

I am using the same pattern for all the squares, daughter's cross-stitch design .

I also made more saltines and yo-yos. These go so quickly even though I do measure the small balls before I start to know which I have enough to do.

24 saltines, 10 yo yos
I have many more bags of yarn scraps. The saltines and yo yos are great for these since even though my bag might have many balls of red, they are not all from the same skein so not the same dye lot. I hesitate to mix them. These small squares and circles are perfect.

In my mailbox this morning was a notice about a new book called Seamless Crochet. Amazon has a look see for this book so you can actually see pages from it. I have not seen the book "in person" but it looks like it's a good one. Who doesn't like having fewer tails to weave in? :-)

Happy crocheting!
