A Pile of Squares
I was thrilled to open a box sent by Kris K. of Saxonburg, PA this past weekend. It was filled with wonderful crochet goodness. Thank you, Kris for this ever so generous gift from your hands and your heart. Kris' workmanship is simply beautiful. There are squares of many colors, shapes, and sizes.
The yarn Kris used is soft with a beautiful sheen and saturated color.
I am partial to pink. What about you?
There are solid squares in interesting textures and patterns.
There are stripes.
And, grannies. Love those grannies!
Aren't these pretty?
The camera just does not do this purple justice.
Soft and sweet.
Large and small.
Have you been counting? Well, if not that's okay, because I counted. Kris sent us 30 blanket squares. Amazing! We love them all. Here is the pile.
Kris also included some yarn to help us in joining squares. This is so appreciated.
You can find Kris on Ravelry as mams. If you visit her there, you will wonder how she managed to get all of the squares completed. She is a busy, busy mom who clearly loves to knit with 114 projects showcased in her Ravelry notebook. You rock, Kris! As I was looking through her projects, I could not help but notice several of her Abagail sweaters. Here is one. Isn't it sweet?
