Does Katerina approve of my latest knitted squares blanket? A work in progress.
Remember all those squares I’ve been knitting? Well now as I watch the exciting Tour de France and the equally if not more exciting tennis matches at Wimbledon, I am joining the squares to make a cosy blanket/lap robe.

I love choosing colors. And then knitting 8 x 8 inch squares.
The intention is to choose yarns from my stash. But I don’t always do that. It’s too much fun to buy more yarn – to have just the right color as my squares grow in number. This coming Sunday is Mother’s Day – maybe I’ll treat this mother with a trip to the yarn store. And of course there’s also tone to consider – another excuse to buy yarn.
Simple isn’t it. After doing several crochet blankets I’ve picked up my knitting again. An easy project just knitting 8×8 inch squares and eventually joining them to make blanket.
knitted squares blanket under which I often take a nap – note the red square in the upper left corner – it’s the first square of the new blanket
each square could tell a story
The Hopewell made several voyages in 1635. Edward Clap, 1605-1664, sailed to Boston on the Hopewell in that year. His wife Prudence accompanied him. He was age 26.
I wish the passengers could have had some of my knitted blankets. A 400 year wait!
