I guess I already wrote about this first one, in the last entry. It has some interesting textures. Popcorn stitches. Puff stitches. Spike stitches. Front-post and back-post stitches. Lots going on, here.

"Kingsley" (by Polly Plum).
I wrote about this one last time, too. I like the way it turned out-- particularly the "leafy"-looking design-- though I had to make some small changes to make it (more or less) match the other blocks in size. I can't remember if I just left off a couple of rounds or shortened some stitches... I think I just left off some rounds.

"Beware the Ides of March" (by Margaret MacInnis).
I left off the tapestry crochet and also left out one round to make the block match the others in size.
This is another that I chose from my queue-- not a block that has (as yet) been specifically included as part of the CAL. It's a while before the next "official" block will be available, so I'll probably choose another from my Ravelry queue. There are plenty waiting!
Though I tend to gravitate towards the ones with opportunities for lots of color changes, I probably need at least a couple more with larger blocks of color, to balance out this afghan's first block, "Puff Wheat".
