76 Trombones led the big parade
But 96 mitered squares cover a bed!
I've been squaring up for about a month now, cheating only for a dalliance with the M-D warshcloth, which has long since gone to a new home with a favorite 7 y.o. girl and a couple of flings with the ballband.****
I'm just about halfway there with the squares. I keep thinking about what Ann and Kay have to say about the queen sized afghan, "They'll think you're crazy, but who cares. They probably already think that any way." (I'm paraphrasing, but I think I got the jist of it. If I didn't, don't correct me. Those words are getting me through.)
****okay, I didn't mention the thing with the Debbie Bliss Denim, the bib. But it's still on the needles. Can't count that. Nobody needs to know.
I can't imagine all the seaming either, but oh well. It'll get done. At first, I thought it might be a two month project. I think I'd better give myself a Christmas deadline, instead.
I was curious about that,,,
This is also on my to do list!
These are great take along projects that do not require a lot of room on the airplane or in the car,,,,,great summer knitting,
Socks were my favorite take along knits but this is a great idea!
Who would have thought I'd want to KNIT a bedspread?
