Going to England!

I'm going to England on Friday to visit with my mother and will be gone for two weeks, so the blog won't be updated with new squares until I get back!

I've almost finished the Dana Hurt square but I don't think it will be finished before I leave. I'm not taking this project with me. I've bought some Wool of the Andes from KnitPicks and I'm going to knit a couple of cable scarves, something easier to follow than GAAA!

Will update the blog again at the beginning of March.

Finished the 4th square last night (Feb. 2nd). Had a couple of false starts with this one. I messed up the yarn overs and ended up with a mistake I didn't notice for a few rows. I tried to fix it but it wouldn't have it so I ripped it back, probably about 10 rows. Anyway, after that it went pretty quickly.

This square would have ended up much too long if I'd done all the rows it called for. I cut it short by about 1/2 a repeat (10 rows) and it blocked perfectly to a 12" square

On to square #5!
