January square

We start the new year off right, with January's square done by the third! Stephen gave me Lynne Barr's Reversible Knitting for Christmas, and this is one of the stitches in it.

I like both sides, and now can't even remember which is her side A and which is B.

I think I like the top picture better, for a garment. For a blanket, this is not actually a very good choice of stitch -- people's fingers and toes will get caught in the drop stitch floats.

As usual, the whole melange on the floor. 

Looking at my yarn supply, I could make this blanket 20 squares instead of 16, I think. Or I could put sashes between the squares, instead of just sewing them together. Of course, we have to see how they all block out, and how much fiddling will be needed to get them together!

Just for good measure, I also darned two socks for Arthur this morning. I took care of another pair by deciding I have to take the toes completely off and reknit them. Not a chore I look forward to, but then, nor is darning. There are still several socks in the darning pile!


  1. Love the new square. But I can see what you mean about getting your toes stuck!
    It sure is pretty either way.

  2. I think I'm going to do sashes between all my squares.

  3. I just borrowed "Reversible knitting" from our public library system. Quite thought provoking isn't it?
