Flash Fiction Challenge – Haiku

Ok, I’m game,  it’s been a long time since I have written any haiku, but I could not pass up the challenge that Dan Alatorre has presented on his blog.  By the way I am not having a stroke, he has a random topic generator on his site….shoo o…………don’t tell anybody.

This is the topic I got:

What do you do in your spare time?

I will sneak a peek

of the hidden realms outside

movie magic time

😀 Haiku’s are fun!

Carolans on ice

Irish whiskey and honey

Whisper sweet nothings

Ok, that one might be a little funky, better have another one!

Fountain of Roses 12″ ,  Wrap Flower 6″, and Rachel Block 12″

Fountain of Roses 12 612 Framed

 

Fountain of Roses was an interesting square. What I was trying to achieve was the different hues of water coming out of a fountain, I don’t know that I did that, but I think the square as a whole turned out nice. I made no changes to this pattern except for the hook size, which is a G/4.00 mm.

Wrap Flower 6 612 Framed

 

The Wrap Flower square is really pretty, I love this square. It has a dimensional flower in the middle which makes it unique and fun. I did have to leave the last round of the square to stay true the 6″, but that is due to my crochet gauge not the pattern which is well written.

 

Rachel Block 12 612 FramedLast but not least is Rachel Block,  this is a pretty flower. I messed up on the petals, I liked the way it looked so I kept it. I also had to leave off the last round to keep to a 12″ square. The way the fpdc and fptrc (front post double crochet and front post triple crochet) look crocheted around the flower on the border kind of reminds me of an Irish or Scottish kilt, I don’t know if anyone else see’s that but I just can’t get that image out of my head.

 

Until next time,

Keep Hook’n
