I thought it was about time I made another block for my scrapghan based on a book. I recently
read devoured The Mark of Athena (Heroes of Olympus, Book 3) by Rick Riordan, and LOVED it.
Yes, they may be kids' books, but they are soooo good! If you haven't read any books by Rick Riordan you should start with the Percy Jackson series! They are well written, funny, educational... just great!
But on to the crochet specifics... I like how I'm getting better at picturing a (simple) design in my head and being able to execute it. I started with a simple granny type circle, and then started to square the circle with red and orange. The red and orange rounds were worked on both sides, like I how worked my Granny Arrows On the Diag.
This square more abstractly represents the book in that the orange and purple represent the Greek and Roman camps (the colors of the camp teeshirts), and the red represents the Mark of Athena...
Anyways, I'll be counting down the days until The Heroes of Olympus Book 4 comes out next year... Have you guys read any books by Rick Riordan? Or any other good books lately?
