Introduction - squares 1 & 2

Hi, my name is Céline and I live in South of France.
I fell in love with the GAAA while surfing around blogs a few months ago, bought the pattern book online, took some time to choose the right yarn for me (Lammy Yarn’s Irlandais) and jumped in knitting my first blocks a few days ago.
So far I’ve knit 4 blocks noted the easiest ones in the booklet :

Ginette Belanger’s,

Barbara Selesnick’s,

Hanna Burns’ (not an easy one in my humble opinion, following the different charts with different row counts is a little tricky) and Julie H. Levy’s (without the bobbles). I'll post a picture of the last two later.
I’ll probably switch the blocks I don’t like with some of the GAA and some of other inspirations (celtic knots, cables untangled, Taste of Aran Afghan, Burridge Lake Aran, etc).
Happy knitting !
