Blanket of squares...........

I made this cozy warm blanket/throw a few years ago... Most evenings while watching t.v., I knit squares of different colors and designs. After accumulating about 50, I crochet two rows around each one in the same color (usually dark), then sew them together. Currently, I'm making one for our living room in shades of green, cream and a little brown. They will be bordered with a very dark navy. At the same time, I'm making another one in many bright colors which will be a gift.

Knitting is such a relaxing passtime and brings me such peace!

First post for March!

I was under the weather with a cold for a couple weeks, so my cardigan sweater was on hold. Yesterday, I resumed working on it and am nearly ready to add the lower ribbing. Then on to the sleeves.

I did knit several 7x9" blocks in various shades of greens, scattered navy and cream. When I have enough of them made, I'll crochet around each one with dark navy yarn, then sew them together. These make up into a nice warm afghan.

If the lighting is right tomorrow, I'll snap a few pictures of these and post here.

Happy Knitting!
