It’s finally finished.

Mitred Square Blanket

Mitred Square Blanket (2)

Mitred Square Blanket (4)

It’s taken just over three years to complete this and I have to say I will never knit another one – it just seemed to be never ending. It is staying on the bed forever!

 

Talk to you later,

    >Hi susan can these squares be knitted on a different gauge machine becsides standard gauge

  26. Susan says:

    >Probably, I haven't tried it though.

  27. Keeliey says:

    >I just LOVE it Susan. You've inspired me to sit down at my Passap Pinkie or my Duomatic 80, OR maybe even my Phildar Big Phil chunky single bed and knit some "pot holder" squares to make a bed cover. I want to knit a pair of "Pants" for the rear wheel of my bicycle. This would be a great way of making them!! Susan, did you use your Hague linker to connect the squares? I just love your videos too!

  28. Cerita says:

    >Oh Susan, it looks absolutely stunning! All that hard work has paid off in the end. It's a masterpiece! Well done!

  29. Susan says:

    >Thanks Keeliey and Cerita.I didn't use the Hague linker, I sewed it all up by hand.

  30. Rachael says:

    >It's fabulous! I LOVE it! You should be proud of yourself for sticking with it and seeing it through. It looks beautiful on your bed too.I too, like Lynne, am crocheting an afghan but mine has been 'hanging around' for a good two years I guess and I now feel inspired to see it completed.

  31. Susan says:

    >Thanks Rachael.

  32. Sophie says:

    >I can see why it took you a long while – that's the biggest Mitred Square project I've ever seen! Thanks to you, I know have an idea how to get rid of my yarn leftovers – I got addicted with the drum carder and the drop spindles that I made a lot of yarns for a couple of sweaters. I just wish I will be able to finish it like you. I admire your perseverance! Congratulations!

  33. Susan says:

    >Thanks Sophie.

  34. >Oh, it's beautiful, Susan. It was worth the wait. I did not relize it would be so huge–must have had mountains of socks to undo. Awesome workmanship! ^__^

  35. Susan says:

    >I only had to undo about half a dozen pairs of socks, just enough to knit the last few squares.

  36. >It's definitely worth the wait! It looks great! A very nice one to lay down to especially when it is perfectly made by you. Nice!
