Three More Blocks :)

I have finished three more blocks since my last post, but have not taken photos of them yet. I have one that is just a checkerboard of knit/purl squares, one that is a sort of tumbling blocks pattern and one that is a sort of star/cross pattern. Not sure how to describe it.

I've got two black (charcoal?), two taupe (?) and two grey (stone?). Not sure if I have enough for another square out of each ball or not.

How are these going to be stitched together? I don't know how to crochet but I am kind of thinking maybe they can be crocheted together in such a way so as to add about 1/2" between each block - maybe in a bold color not used for the squares like red or blue or green. Of course it would be easiest to just use one of the colors we've already used for squares like grey?

Anyway I ask because I am thinking about doing some two-tone squares to use the rest of the yarn but I want it to look good with whatever seaming method we choose...

Three Blocks

Sorry it took so long to do this - my computer is currently waiting for a new motherboard. But I borrowed a friend's today to upload these so here are three blocks I have finished. I should have another 2 or 3 finished by the end of this week.

I do have a question - what about a two-tone block? I don't think I have enough grey left for another block, and if so I won't have enough black either - but what about one block being grey and black?

This one is diamonds of different sizes.

This is all three together. The top one is a kind of twisted rib or something, actually I don't remember what pattern I used! The black one is just a diagonal stripe.
