Just Thought I’d Try One

DH says he thinks a blanket of these would be cool.

first quarter square
the first — unblocked
I really should have color corrected that orangey-red

I still have not figured out my rules. I only have a handful of Tahki Cotton Classic. This is what I like to call… a trial run.

Of course, despite my lack of rules, I did pick colors and cast on a second:

the second
this is a very slippery slope

Uh oh.

    Umm…I’m guessing that those squares are kinda like potato chips that way – (you can’t eat just one).

    I guess you’ll be buying more Tahki Cotton Classic, then? :)

    I want to start one now, too.

    Have you learned nothing from the madness that was January One? ;)

    I must admit I’m tempted, but I have my own miters going, and there’s no way I’m letting myself start another blanket before finishing at least one of the two I have underway currently. (One is a rather old UFO….)

    it might be a slippery slope, but the colors are so preetttty…

    Ooh that’s lovely. I will resist, mainly because the lure of socks is still too strong. Thank God! ;o)

    This square looks awesome! I was very tempted to make a blanket with these, but then realized I’m way too lazy to put up with that much work – but yours will be worth it, that’s for sure!

    Cara’s blanket is certainly inspiring! I need to knit a baby blanket, and I’m considering mitering it, too. All those pretty colors are certainly addictive!

    I’d love to follow your blog as you knit your mitered squares. I have been following Cara’s (januaryone) with enthusiasm. I did finally purchase every color available of Sonata from Elann so that I can knit all those squares, too. I do have baby knitting to finish first, but in the meantime, I endlessly plan the color combinations to use. I am going to lay all the skeins out in a color wheel for the fun of it. So much fun going on in my head at this point – lol.
