~ quirky and unexpected ~
I think you should put all of them togeather and make a big blanket out of them. It would be very colorful, and add even more color to that couch:)
Morning SharonI like the plain 'building blocks'. Not sure if I have seen a post where you pick up and knit (or crochet) out from one 'block' - not one on one but more one-half of one and one half of next ) or any fraction and join as you go, so to speak. A wealth of abundance!
I have been doing the same thing! Except with hexagons...I am thinking about making my little sister a little afghan. :)
A project that could work with smaller pieces might be to make scarf like strips and THEN join them. The strips could be the final length/width of the project, or just whatever you could work up in a night (?1-3ft=5-15colors?) It would create the desired building block effect and be a little less work in the end...Less finish joining, frustration and clutter, but maybe a little extra planning.
To Karen, were you trying to explain a Log Cabin pattern?I could see where the constant color changing would spark that idea, but that requires a growing amount of each color changed as the rounds go on...like a granny square but one side at a time in a spiral. It doesn't look like any of those minis are more than 1-2oz each, but I could see where lpg would make rainbow blocks to add round by round. ;D
How about stripes. Just see how long the shortest piece will go and make that your stripe. Or do a magic ball where the colours change randomly. Like that lovely rug you made a while back.
Hey, i have a blog also, and i cant figure out how to get people to read it. I love your website, and was wondering if anyone had any tips. Thanks:))
The magic ball idea sounds like fun. No, I wasn't thinking log cabin - more a random design building on whatever occurs. Now you have me thinking .... I have some tapestry wool skeins ...... hmmmmm
I like the garter squares. Is that crochet or knit though? I'd love to see a pattern or point me to a pattern for either the garter or the leaf pattern. I'd like to use the leaf in some scarves I'm making this fall.
Hello! I'm happy to found you! You have made lovely things! It's nice that you use different kind of squares. The blanket with knitted squares is wonderful! I'll go to read more! Best wishes from Crete Teje
Stumbled upon this today:http://sanctimony.net/2010/09/undersea-creatures.htmland it got me thinking....amigurumi? The Lion Brand yarn site has loads of free patterns, but they are all over the interwebs.
