Thank you, momwolf! They are GORGEOUS!
I think the light purple would be very nice as well.

Yesterday, one of my piano students gave me a square that she crocheted for our blanket!


Right now, we have 14 completed squares, and I'm starting another one now. So we need 9 more squares to make another blanket!

If you want to make a square, I need to receive it from you by April 15th!

Hi everyone! Since Sandy is busy for the next few days I thought I'd see if anyone could help me. I thought this square would be SO simple to knit, but knitting has a way of keeping me humble.

My finished square ended up being 11-1/2 inches. I measured as I went along and stopped at 10 inches when doing the increase side, and then started the decrease side.

I obviously didn't measure correctly but I don't know where I went wrong. I don't have much experience with wool, so should I have stretched it out before I measured it? Is it better to knit it a little short and then stretch and block it?

Also, were you able to get two squares from one skein of yarn? It doesn't look like I'm going to have enough yarn for a second square.

McKnitty I had trouble too. I'm so used to just co and doing my thing, I never really measure anything. So I just kept experiemneting. I ended up using 10 and half size needles instead and fewer stithces. I think it was 45 or something like that. I just just kept knitting till it came out about right. You'll get there too

Thanks, feministmama! I was feeling awful that I could mess up such an 'easy' pattern. Maybe I've been knitting in the round for so long that I've became square challenged!

I'm going to have to spend some quality time at the frog pond.

I'm back!

My craft room is now ready for my sweet hubby to have a corner in it. I hope that he will be okay with that little space. It's all I could make room for!

McKnitty, I hope you were able to figure out your square.

Right now, I have 20 completed squares, and I'm working on 2 more. So, I only need 2 more squares to have enough for two baby blankets!

On Saturday, I received a package from momwolf, containing 5 purple squares!
