Thursday Tid Bits

I think winter may have come back to extend its stay. While we did not get much in the way of snow over the last couple of days, the temperature is steadily falling and we are back to feeling like ice cubes. I haven't been for my early morning walk since Monday and I am feeling the effects. Getting a bit grouchy here. At least the sun is shining.

Here is the start of the squares I am knitting out of the bits and bobs of leftover yarn, plus any leftover skeins and balls from previous projects. The squares are just over 11" and I am slowly but surely working my way through the stash of pinks and purples. It will be interesting to see what the finished blanket will look like, and how I put the whole thing together.... I don't know how to crochet so I guess the squares will be sewn together.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Are you using a moss stitch? I really like the knitting stitch you are using. Looks lovely.

It is moss stitch, with 6 rows of garter stitch to begin the square and end it.

God bless.

Does that hold it shape well - garter stitch and moss? Mine just curl up along the edges. Or is it that I am a hopeless knitter?

Jackie said...

Mine seems to be holding its shape not too badly. The first row of garter stitch curls a little bit, but with a bit of blocking should be just fine.

God bless.
