I got started this weekend and my first square is knitting up quickly. I'm using Caron's Simply Soft yarn in white. I used the same brand for my son's afghan and it was very nice to work with. "Simply Soft" is a perfect name for this yarn.

I choose a moss stitch because it looked cool and I never tried it before. I probably have one or two more nights of knitting on this one before it will be done.

I think I have enough yarn to do a few more so I'm hoping to try a few more stitches that are in my reference books.

In case anyone would like to use the same stitch pattern: I just casted on 54 stitches, knit 3 rows for the garter border and then started in on the moss stitch (Rows 1 & 2 are k1, p1; Rows 3 & 4 are p1, k1) with 3 stitches knit at the beginning and end of each row.

You are so organized!

Do you mind if I wait until mid-October to send you all of my squares at once or would it be easier if I sent them to you as I finished them?
