This is my first bias square- presented with many thanks to Kay from Mason Dixon Knitting (see link to right- yeah, yeah, I do know how to code a link, sort of, just haven’t tried in this blog yet…) and also my first time knitting with this teeny tiny yarn on #2 needles (I really like the knitpicks needles!). Kay’s asked for 4″ squares to make up a blankie to then raffle off for Oliver’s Fund (please rely on others for that link- see above!). Also, I just LOVE self-striping yarn. I know some folks thinks it’s ‘for dummies’, but for me it’s inspiring- I love to see what will happen next. Easily entertained I guess. My first (and only, so far) socks were knit with Knitpicks Parade, and I’m pretty sure the main reason I got them done as quickly as I did was the stripes. This is Regia Jacquard Color, and the color is called Paris. It’s got so many of my favorite colors in it- indigo, purple, lavender, cobalt- so pretty! And so today I also disclose my obsession with Paris. We traveled there two summers ago and I was so smitten I’ve been planning my return ever since! No doubt I’ll be sharing some of the myriad photos I took during that trip at some point.
Anyway- check out Kay’s post, and you too can knit fun four inch squares and send them to her, where they will be transformed into a no-doubt beautiferous blankie to help Oliver get a new wheelchair. What fun!!
