Mitered Crosses blanket from Mason-Dixon Knitting, and I still love the pattern. Instigated by the 2011 tsunami in Japan, proceeds from the sales of this pattern still go to Mercy Corps relief work.
For a baby-sized blanket, I adjust the pattern and do a simple 3x3 square. That's my 5-inch gauge ruler in the picture for scale. I'm knitting it entirely out of worsted weight stash, and am pretty thrilled that it looks like I may actually have enough of the cream color. One more square to go, attaching, weaving of ends, and an applied I-cord border (in the multi-color yarn). Looks to be on track for finishing by the end of May!
I have once again joined the Harry Potter Knitting and Crochet House Cup group on Ravelry. I intend that this will distract me from neither my knitting goals nor my blogging. It did last time, but this time around I feel like I know more about it, and have a plan for incorporating it into my knitting routine. Hopefully, it will also help me get my ravelry projects page caught up with reality.
