Stardust Melodies – Adventures in Crochet Texture

Good morning!  I am excited to finally have a moment to share my progress on my Stardust Melodies blocks. They are all so textured and beautiful 🙂


One of the things I really like about this CAL is that each block is a mini afghan in and of itself.  


I can easily finish one in an evening of sewing or a short road trip with my DH.


I am using yarn that has been in my stash for way too long.  I’m glad to have a project where I can use it up without the need of matching perfectly:)


Most of the blocks are quite easy to just jump right in and crochet away.


Don’t they look fantastic?! — But one block in particular took a little more patience.


This one filled with “x”s was an adventure in stitch and frog, stitch and frog until I finally got it!


I have also learned that scratchier yarn is better than soft, silky yarn on this project.


This block is super soft, but very flimsy, and the pattern kind of gets lost.  I don’t know if I will make another with this yarn or not.  I definitely need the lighter block color….we’ll see:)


Here are my blocks neatly blocked and stacked.  Yum! Yum!  They are so SWEET!!


And this is my current block that will be done tonight.   It may be my favorite yet:)  And now there are only 12 more to go!
