I tried to resist, but yesterday, I couldn’t hold out anymore, I cast on for the Mitered Crosses Blanket. It’s going to be a long term project to use up all sorts of scraps of yarn. I have issues with long term projects like this because I want things done right now, but it’s a good exercise in patience, right? I started with some Silk Garden Lite, because what is better than Noro for something like this? Exactly. The square is beautiful. It really does look like a quilt square. I can’t wait to have more of them (but I will have to because I have to wait to start anymore until I get some other knitting done). And the money from pattern sales goes to support relief work in Japan which is nice.
I also am making some good progress on some socks. They are a couple inches past the heel now, and I am starting to run out of the main color of yarn, since I only had around half a ball left, but I still have lots of the contrasting color so I am going to start some ribbing in that once I do.
