What will these be?

Happy Labor Day!  This means that summer is coming to a close and kids are going back to school, and the beaches and walking trail will not be so crowded.  All of us who live near the beaches, breathe a sigh of relief with the passing of Labor Day -- less people and less traffic.  I have finished six log cabin squares with my left-over balls of handspun yarn and now I have to contemplate what to do with them.  I have an idea that I am going to try today so stay tuned.  

These squares are about 7.5" x 7.5" so they are much bigger than the granny squares I crochet.

And the really nice thing about them is that each edge has live stitches, which means that you can place them on a needle and start knitting and can easily connect them with a technique called the Kitchener stitch.

Now, if only it would cool down.  We are pretty tired of 90+ degree weather.  I am frazzled.

Beautiful patches! You may just inspire me to pick up some of many long neglected infants.

We are finally feeling the chills this morning. I have so many finished projects awaiting to be photographed for month--extended heatwave was killing me, literally. Fall is so inviting. Hope you are doing well and imagine you are busy getting ready for the November show.
