I'm busily sorting squares to send out packets and trying to keep the list updated about available packets. My hand written list is up to #50 so far! WOOHOO!!! Keep sending those requests. If you want a packet there are still plenty to send out.
I have just finished sorting the 7.5" squares and have a decent size stack of mitred squares that were sent by knitters who obviously thought "let's rock this project with something different!" I'm really loving the mitred squares and set them aside as I came to them in the 7.5" sorting process (didn't do so with the 8"). I have a stack of 29 mitred squares and thought they would work well in an afghan containing 36 squares (set 6x6). That would be a total of nine sets of mitres (3x3). If you have no clue what I'm talking about you can see an example here. Pattern is available in various places including the Mason Dixon knitting book.
So is there anyone out there who is interested in taking on the 29 mitred squares and making 7 more for a 36 squares blanket? I'm just thinking this would be really awesome for a child or lap blanket. The 7 additional squares can be any color but just need to be 7.5" square. I can even send you some nice Cascade 220* in gorgeous colors to make the 7 extra mitres!! :)
Leave a comment or send an email if you would like to take this packet. It'll be #51 when I update the chart.
