I've been working away on my log cabin squares.
But the Mitered Crosses Blanket gets in the way again.
Mason Dixon Knitting) has tripped me up with a contest. They have now sold nearly 2000 copies of their Mitered Crosses Blanket Pattern. And to encourage more knitters to start their blankets, Ann has put up a wonderful bag of goodies that she actually won from Bliss Yarns which is her local yarn shop. It is also my local yarn shop so it would be great fun to win! So I looked through my meager collection of Noro leftovers and found a skein and a half of Noro Silk Garden Sock for the center crosses. I also had a skein of Knit Picks sock yarn in Bare for the back ground color. So I have almost finished my first block and it really is a great, fun pattern. I have uploaded my photo to Ravelry so I am officially entered into the contest.
My daughter has a softball game after school followed by a soccer practice and then I'm spending the evening attending a Stroke and Turn clinic for the upcoming swim team season. So that means lots of knitting time!
