Sorry about the crappiness of this photo! I had taken it with my phone a while ago, when I finished the first two squares. I'm sure you can get the general idea though. Like I said previously, the pieces will be arranged in an alternating checkerboard pattern.

jezebel- They look great!! I can't wait to see the finished blanket...

I love it!  I might do this again (if I ever get done with this one) in a different yarn like you have - I really like how that is turning out.   I have thus far resisted the urge to start sewing my squares together - but maybe I will just stitch a few   Wink

I'll take a picture as soon as I can... my memory card is completely filled, so I have to get a new one first

What? *techie geek mode* But.. copy it things to the harddrive, or photobucket or whatnot. clear it! you can't buy a new memory card every time it fills up!  Shocked

oh and your squares look lovely ^^

I am greatly aware of the fact that *most* people store their pictures on their harddrive, but I am not one of them. I am in the process of acquiring a new notebook, as the one I am working from currently has the tendency to distort images over time. I usually use Snapfish to hold my digital images, but both Snapfish and Photobucket take an eternity to upload on this older model. Circumstances don't leave me much choice, don't you agree?

Well I still think buying both a dvd-burner and a load of dvds would be cheaper than keeping on buying memory cards, but I do see your point now that you explained it Wink

fragolina_piccolina - I really like how that is working up in solid colors, I would never have though to try that. I looks so pretty! I can totally see this blanket done in a big rainbow using Simply Soft Brites Grin

Here is my latest square, I'm sorry I don't have the color number, I haven't been so good about labeling what squares are what color.




And here are the two skeins I have waiting for squares (I remembered to label these!):

I like what you've got so far.  I haven't used the colors you are using yet, but do keep track of them.  After a point, they all look the same at the knitting store & you won't remember which ones you've already used. 

Here's some of mine.  I have 16 total, but like I said, 3 are really small and I might not be able to use them in the blanket.  My friend who owns my knitting store suggested that I make them into throw pillows to go with the blanket!  Now,that's thinkin' lincoln!

I started this as a stash buster, but I'm doing columns instead of squares, I love this pattern!

I'd love to see what you've got so far fragolina_picocolina.  I hadn't thought of subbing yarn either - it is expensive but I am so in love with noro I just had to do it.  If I win the lottery, I'll do another one in noro silk garden

I am being very frugal with the noro though.  One of my squares is a bunch of leftover mini-balls of noro & its my favorite one.  Then I used all the trimmings from sewing in my seams to make felted balls.  Don't know what I'll do with those yet but I'm sure something will just cry out to me.

I've seen some cute necklaces made of felted balls, just string 'em together and you've got a noro wilma flinstone necklace or bracelet!
