They say that variety is the spice of life! Applied to crochet I think that means we should try lots of different things because that keeps life interesting! So this next block has just the perfect name for a CAL such as this one which is ALL about variety and it introduces us to a new stitch; popcorn stitch (which are the puffy ones in the picture below).
This square is free (and has been since February 2012) on the My Blue Angels blogspot.
Although we are on block 10 there is still plenty of time to catch up – the full schedule and details about the CAL can be found here.

Ta dah!! This is my version of this square using my colour palette (I blogged about this here). I was really excited about trying out all my colours on this square and love how it turned out; the popcorn stitch is definitely one of my favourite stitches.
