The Babette

I've been working on a few of the tiniest squares for The Babette. I've just finished a dozen of them and this brings my total number of squares (of all sizes) up to 40. If I'm remembering correctly, as the pattern is written, I'll need around 120 squares, but since I'm making The Babette bigger than the Babette in the original pattern, I'll need more than that before I'm through. When I'm doing this tiny size of block, it almost takes longer to weave in the ends than it does to make the little blocks. Caleb is fascinated by these for some reason and keeps asking if he can have one. I will need to make him a Babette or something using squares in more manly colors.

Hi Melanie. I've been reading your blog for a bit but never commented. Just thought I would suggest weaving in your ends as you crochet. I've been crocheting a lot of years and I try to hold my ends under as I'm crocheting and then there are none to weave in except the outside rows. I'm not explaining this well but I lay the end on top of the row I just finished and crochet over it.

What Debby said! Depending on how you plan to connect your squares, you can leave those tails free for later "weaving" or sewing. If you're going to sew the squares together, leave extra long tails and sew with them.

If Caleb is fascinated, maybe he needs a hook and yarn so he can make some of his own squares!

I love the colors and multiple-sized squares in this project. You mentioned needing more sock yarn scraps; are you putting out a "call" for pink/red/orange/yellow fingering weight scraps?
