Block a Week Friday

Block 19 
Little knots

I know that the mistakes in this one are obvious they scream out look at me! and if I was good I would rip it out and make it again, but to be honest I don't want to make this block again, I really don't see the point of it, who would want to make a block that looks like this when it's finished

It needs blocking of course but even after you have blocked it it still looks cock-eyed. I'm hoping the crookedness of it will disappear when it's sewn into a blanket but I won't be making another.

Rating - intermediate
Curl - 2
size - 6"x 6"
ends - 2

Of course not everyone has made a mess of it like I have as you can see by these perfect examples from...

  1. I really appreciate your honesty about this block. It would take me a thousand years to master it, of course. Kudos to you for sticking with it.

  2. Oh I'm so sorry you're disappointed with this block Linda - it reminds me of patterns I've followed when my children were young …. and I wouldn't want to try again either. Have a sweet and happy weekend, xoJoy

  3. Very nice!!
    Have a lovely weekend,hug.:*

  4. I wouldn't try it again either. Some things are just not worth persuing x
