Knitting my way through June

 This year is whizzing by, how can it be the end of June already!  

There were a couple of things I wanted to do in June, one of them was finish my Autumn Dream stitching, (that didn't happen but, I'll talk about that another time).  The second thing was to knit a square every day on my mitred square blanket.  

That sort of happened, I managed to knit 25 squares so I'm calling that a success. 

I really love this blanket and the whole process of choosing a new colour to add.

All the minis from my Advents have been sitting on the coffee table since Christmas!  It was supposed to be somewhere to put them as I opened a new one each day, and six months later they are still there, lol.  They look pretty though.

My blanket lives in a basket which I've been keeping in the sitting room this month so that I can pick it up each night, there are also lots of minis in there too.

This is how big it is now, yeah, still got a long way to go.

This will eventually go on my bed, I reckon it needs to be at least another 6 or 7 rows high and it's only about a 1/3 of the width, so at this rate I should be done in about ten years. 

As much as I love it It's going to stay in the basket for the next month as I have other plans for July.

Those colours are gorgeous and the blanket will be as well.

God bless.

It's good to have a craft project that you can work on when you feel like it. It's satisfying to see a blanket grow and yours has a nice pattern with pretty coloured squares.

It's going to be such a gorgeous blanket. I love all the muted tones you've used. I've had my blanket out again too over the last couple of weeks, I've just finished my 100th square so we've done about the same amount.

That's knitting up beautifully! It reminds me a little of the famous tiled wall at Yardhouse:

Mitred square blanket has lovely pastel colours. Knitting is not done here in Malaysia where our temperatures are high and days are hot. Crochet is more popular. Following your posts

It always seams a great idea to start a cover for your bed, I never think we workout how much work is involved, it does look beautiful.

Oh, the colors in your blanket are delightful, Maggie! I know nothing about knitting, but the way you've arranged the colors and the diagonal row that goes across each square is so appealing. Hope to see your Autumn Dream progress soon--I think that may be one of my fall stitches :) Happy July to you! ♥
