HollYarns Noro Squares
In answer to Stephanie's questions :
I am using a size 7 needle, casting on 55 stitches. I purl the first row. On the second, I slip a stitch knitwise; knit 26 stitches, slip 1 stitch knitwise, k2tog, psso; and knit the final 26 stitches. Doing it with this many cast-on stitches, I am able to usually get 3 squares out of each ball of Silk Garden. However, there is little or none left from each skein and so I am unsure as to how I am going to seam up the blanket. I have been tossing around the idea of seaming it with thin gauge fishing line--but really have no idea if that'll work. I am also considering ordering another skein of each color to make more squares and leave a sufficient amount over for seaming.
Above is my latest Noro square (sorry about the lighting--it was late in the evening).

If it were me I would buy more yarn for the seaming.
