'Crochet keeps our hands busy so our minds can rest. It is a gift to help quiet the world around us, if even for a moment. To create -- and think of those we create for --is a quiet prayer of hope, love and dreams all wrapped up in a hook, a book and a ball of yarn. Author Anonymous. Thanks Cynthia.

Gray, brown, beige, dark blue.......

...sorry, these are not "my colours", but colours for the August theme.
No lace or flowery patterns.
I've made these "male" squares:

I've added a bit white and green to make them a bit lighter.
They are on their way to Sue, together with the Strawberries and Cream squares.

I'm sure they will appear in beautiful blankets!


  1. Wow, they are all so beautiful. So lovely from you.

    I crochet since the last weekend squares for Sue too. And I am addicted to it. ;o)

    Today or tomorrow i post pictures from my squares of my blog.

    Many smiles and lovely greets from Germany,

  2. Karin,
    Wonderful Squares so beautiful for Men! Really nice work thank you. Of course the Strawberry theme too. OOh I shall look forward to meeting and greeting them!
    Thanks for your interest, Suex

  3. wow :)

  4. I like them as well .They are so cute too.

  5. Hi Karin - the gentlemen's squares you made might not be in your usual vibrant colors, they do however showcase the lovely stitches you used to make them. Great work! I am certain they will be made into a comforting blanket for a nice gentleman.

  6. Hi Karin, oh those 'boy' colours are so beautiful, and your crochet work is stunning. They are going to go well in a rug for a fellow for sure. You should be very proud of them. Your strawberries and cream squares are equally stunning. I can't stop looking at your beautiful crochet. I am sure I have turned rather a bright green here. My goodness, I want to learn me some more crochet stitches. Thank you for sharing your beautiful talent with us. Bless.
