After successfully making a dent in the pile of granny squares that I have crocheted (by sewing them together to make a baby blanket), I decided that I wanted to try my knitting hand at some bigger squares by using the pattern called Log Cabin. I have been wanting to try this particular pattern for a long time because it's a great way to use up all those small balls of left over handspun yarn and it's all done in garter stitch and is a kind of "no brainer" knitting that can be done without a tremendous amount of concentration. I have completed two squares so far and have started a third. I really love these. They are much bigger than my granny squares at 7.5" x 7.5" and will be less of a hassle to sew together.
Now I am off to the Sunday farmer's market. Last week, I discovered a vendor there that has fresh squeezed pomegranate juice, tastes just like the freshly picked fruit. I must have more!
