So many garter stitch squares... (49 to be exact!) Finally finished! Kera couldn't help posing with the squares. The final products looks like its going to be about 3 feet by 3 feet before I add the i-cord border.
All my ends have been woven in and all the squares have been washed. Last night I happily sat down to start stitching them together. After about four hours of frustration, and several times of throwing two squares across the room, I remembered something that I'm sure my mother and my seventh grade Home Economics teacher know quite well. I'm terrible at sewing. It's gonna take a little long than I anticipated to get these squares sewn together in a way that looks decent. I don't even have two connected squares to show you.
I've also pulled a pair of socks out of hibernation to calm the frustration from sewing. My Berry Rose socks are Knitty's Blackrose Socks by Susie Avin in Dream in Color Everlasting Sock. When I saw this pattern I knew I had to do knit in a wine color. Just loving these, and glad that I have time for them again. If any knitters out there find a disturbance in the space-time continuum that allows for more knitting time, please let me know!
