Squaring Off


This month, I declared war on the acrylic yarn in one of my yarn baskets. With size 8 needles my hand, we squared off, literally. As a result, I knit 30 garter-stitch (seven-inch) squares and 5 garter-stitch (twelve-inch) squares for the February All Crafts for Charity project. The squares will be sent to a joiner on Monday along with a triangle garter-stitch shawl that I made earlier.

The yarn basket beside my knitting chair is not empty, but I am declaring a temporary victory.

  3. GREAT WORK NANCY. YOU DO KNOW THAT YOU'LL NEVER WIN THE WAR JUST SMALL BATTLES. I HAVE A BASKET TO, IF I DO NEARLY GET IT EMPTY IT JUST SEAMS TO FILL UP AGAIN. :-)
    THAT JUST MEANS WE'VE HELPED EVEN MORE PEOPLE, MAY YOUR BASKET NEVER BE EMPTY.
