I have been working on some "swatches" trying different stitch patterns. I use the plural form because I made more than one less than three. These were just an experiment and will probably send them to a friend who is collecting squares to make blankets.
Both are made from Berroco Nostalgia
Reversible cable pattern
Stitch: Gull Lace pattern
Sock Blankie by Shelley Kang, would really like to make one too. I just can't seem to get the rythm of the mitered square. I'm doing better than I was last year at this time.
My First Square
made with leftovers from Unique Sheep Verve. The finished blocking size was 4"
I loved knitting with the Kureyon sock yarn...after I skeined the ball, soaked and, wound it up again. The bigger square measure approximately 6" the smaller one are 3". It took several tries to match the right needles with the right yarn to get these sizes. They are fun to make and have thrown me off course from my other goal knitting. They have been blocked and ends woven in. Theya re going to be put away until I finish some other committments.
Happy Valentines Day!
