Black & White and Seaside

Hello dear Sibolettes!
I've made four black and white squares already.

Yes, the fourth one is white. I must admit: I don't like the black part of the challenge.
Am I the only one having problems with not seeing stitches in black crocheted?
I'm glad there was the August-extra-seaside-theme!

And I've made one square that doesn't fit in any theme:

Or is it suitable for the Seaside blanket? Sue, it's all yours!


  1. Karin
    Thanks for posting these they are all great.
    I think the bottom one will be fine in the Sea Challenge. I love it. I don't know what it is about it, but it reminds me of the Sea and the Sand!
    Thank you Karin!
    Have you seen the Bonfire Challenge?
    x Hugs Suex

  2. oh totally agree, the last one is very beachy for sure, the colours are lovely. Karin, these squares are just beautiful.

  3. Thank you ladies!
    @ Sue: yes I saw the Bonfire challenge. I know what fireworks/bright/sparkley means, but can you tell more about Bonfire and 5th November....because I really don't have any clue what that's all about....
    Perhaps a little post, if possible...please!

  4. Karin, all of the squares are wonderful. I especially like the nautilus shell. Its beautiful...
