Remember my miter squares? Turns out they wanted to become a baby mat, the kind every baby needs for stretching out on the floor for kicking exercises. I put on a backing of Butterfly cotton for extra cushiness. Then I picked up stitches around the edges for a sawtooth border of individual miters. The pictures show the whole piece, the border detail on a corner, and the corner turned back to show the backing. I'm very happy with it and it was fun, but it did take me quite a while. Think I'll cast on a dishcloth to cleanse the palate before I jump into log-cabin squares!
I'm loving all the different ways everyone's going when we all started with the same book!
Excellent job!! Kristin
I was looking at the different rugs in the book this morning, trying to figure out how to justify buying the yarn to make one. You just provided me with the perfect answer -- hooray!
It is amazing to see how everyone puts their own signature on these patterns.
It's inspired me to try some new things.
I'm almost done with my Nina Shawl!!!
