Yarn Along

6:00 AM

It's Wednesday again and that means it is time for the weekly yarn along.  I'm joining with Ginny and everyone to share books and knitting (& crocheting).  I haven't really been working on any new knitting.  I decided to stitch together the squares I received as part of the square swap group on Ravelry.    One person dropped out and so I have to make my own square to fill in.  Actually, I 'll have to make one small rectangle and one large rectangle.  You can see that all of the "squares" are different sizes.  I didn't try to put them together by color, but rather by size.  After I make my squares and stitch the whole thing together, I'm going to crochet a border around the edges to finish.  Then I will drop it off at the local Project Linus drop box.  
I finished the book Starting Now by Debbie Macomber.  I liked it, but I thought the end was wrapped together too neatly.  I do like her books and wasn't disappointed by this one.  It was an easy read.  I just started reading City of Bones by Michael Connelly on my ipad.   Too soon to judge that one yet.

Happy Yarn Along Wednesday.

  4. Oh this will be a beautiful blanket!! Ugh no fun to have to sew all the uneven squares together. I did that last winter when I made all different size granny squares!

  6. it's always a challenge putting together squares that a bunch of different knitters make. I did it once....and think I did the crochet-thing, but around each square, to sort of make them close to the same size. it actually turned out rather well. (It was a baby gift--long gone or i would have sent a photo). good luck!!!!

  9. All those squares are neat! It seems like with the different sizes it would be hard to put them together. But I don't know anything about knitting so maybe it's not as bad as it seems :)
