Exciting times here. Squares for the Born To Knit blanket that I’m putting together are starting to arrive. The great news is that I’ll have more than enough squares to probably make two blankets. I’m uber chuffed.
I’m still practising my knitting making squares.
I’ve been playing around with changing colours…
… and practicing my purling to make a stocking stitch too. Hopefully these squares will be okay once they’re stretched out between two garter stitched squares – on their own they’re quite curly wurly!
I’ve made a ribbed square too and now I’m planning to cast on a moss stitched one. I’m enjoying learning new stitches and techniques and I’m still loving consolidating my basic knit stitch too… there are some needles and yarn in the car’s glove box ready for a row here and there as I go about my days.
It would seem that I am breeding a yarn lover. Baby O just can’t get enough of balls of yarn, crochet hooks and knitted squares. It is so lovely to watch his delighted expression as he plays yarn. We were having much fun this morning playing a mini tug-a-war game. He was laughing aloud and having such a good time. Makes my heart melt.
Perhaps you want to practise a new knitting stitch (or just consolidate an old familiar one) and make a square too? It’s not too late. Read here for the details.
