This weekend after finishing and blocking my blanket and shawl I started a few new projects.
The Short-Row Hat by Veronik Avery.
Ulmus by Kristen Kapur.
By Sunday night my hands were very tired from knitting. But I still wanted something to do while I watched the season finale of Mad Men. The Fiber Gallery has volunteered to be a drop-off site for a local project to benefit Knit-a-Square. Despite the name, squares can be crocheted too. I decided to crochet a scrappy square with whatever I had lying around. This is when I learned that I can't crochet a square. I thought I could. I also thought these colors looked good together so clearly my judgment was way off late Sunday night.
Yesterday I decided that I was going to crochet a square that was square damn it! And I did it.
No, really. It's an honest to goodness square. See?
It then occurred to me that a granny square might be easier to keep square.
Only just started this guy but I like it already. And it looks like a square.
