May 2015 Mystery CAL

Hi everyone! Last week Joanita from Creative Crochet Workshop kindly invited me for the May Mystery Crochet Along!

https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/cll707fp50b11t4f1p2iftamdok

The main challenge of this crochet along is to use those scraps of yarn that we all have around. I'm in the middle of decluttering my house, so this is just perfect timing!

Only scraps are allowed and it's a month-long project, so there is still time for you to join if you want to!

The party is on here and you can post your pictures directly onto Google+.

You can access patterns in the link below. For the first part of the challenge you need to make eight blocks.

As usual I'm running a little behind, so the only thing I've made so far is yarn selection:
 

This balls of yarn  are leftovers from making the rug pictured in the photo below. I started that rug before I was married and finished it after my daughter was born. Since then, all the leftover yarn has been living in my closet and I've never done anything with it. 


 I know I still have some green left too, so I need to go back for it. I'll be using a size 4 needle (even though the yarn is fairly thick, I've tested and size 4 works great). 

Hopefully I'll be able to start my blocks this evening and post along this week. Though in my case the May challenge may well slide into June...

Anyway, check out the party and join it if you can. The more, the merrier!
