Hello, friends. This week finds me in my beloved hometown of Toronto for an October visit. Travel means travel knitting! My knitter’s kit (below) was the most considered part of my luggage. I knew I wanted to work on a few hats during this stay, what with Winter not too far ’round the corner, so it was 16″ circulars and DPNs for me.
In other knitting news, I’ve begun some very early exploration of mitered square-knitting, using scrap yarn. The mitered square duo below is looking a little irregular and misshapen, but they are very happy to be together. After working a seamed-squares blanket on my last knit, I’m really loving this method’s seamless construction. The mitered square is the humble workhorse of blanket-knitting; its simplicity makes it mighty, in my eyes! I hope to give these squares some more (increasingly square-shaped) company as I continue to knit.
Have you had any experiences/adventures in working mitered squares? How do they compare, to you, with working other kinds of blankets and afghans? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
