Today I’m taking a break from designing to crochet something fun and learn new techniques. I’m following Chi-Chi on her keitopalette blog as today is the first part of her new pattern release called Around the Bases. I thought it would be a good way to use some of my Vanna’s Choice Baby Colors, since they are being discontinued and I can’t use them for designing anymore. For my center square, I’ve chosen the square from The Enchanted Garden by Courtney Laube as it combines the work of two of my favorite designers, Joyce Lewis and Dedri Uys. There is so much exciting crochet these days!
