May 2015 crochet along update everyone! I've been hard at work on the May Mystery Crochet Along, so here's an update!

In case you missed my post last week, Joanita from Creative Crochet Workshop invited me for the May Mystery Crochet Along. Part 1 was posted on May 6th and part two on May 13th and you can use only yarn scraps to complete the challenge (patterns are posted by Joanita on her blog). 

I've started a bit late since it took me a while to gather the yarn leftovers I wanted (needed) to use, but I've now completed part 1 and started part 2, so I'm guessing that by next Wednesday I'll be almost ready to tackle part 3 of the challenge.

Here are the completed blocks from part 1:

Since we are supposed to use the same type of yarn throughout the CAL, I gathered all leftovers from a rug I made several years ago, but after a while I was getting tired of all the greens and browns so I cheated and added a dark blue (leftover from the boy version of the easy winter hat). It's a bit softer than the others but works well with a size 4 hook too, so I'll be using it here and there to break the monotony of the other colors.

If you want to take part in this crochet along, there is still time! The party is on here and you can post your pictures directly onto Google+.

Have fun,
