Bored? Knit a square!

And that’s pretty much what I did this weekend.  I also needed squares from my Lovegood blanket over at Hogwarts at Ravelry, where I am a member of House Ravenclaw.  Harry Potter for the win!

So, I decided on two different squares.  The first is a horseshoe cable square.  I like it!  Cables are fun, especially when you read you pattern correctly and it comes out correctly.  Interested in trying it yourself?  Here’s the link to the pattern on Ravelry.

The purple one here is out of my beloved 201 Knitting Motifs, Blocks, Projects, and Ideas by Nicki Trench.  It’s her Kiss block.  It’s quite easy to do.  Here are the project details over on Ravelry.

I’ve also ready elsewhere that knitting blocks is a just a good way to learn new techniques, and I hope to do that here with my blanket squares.  It’s a good exercise in technique and keeps you from getting bored.  Squares are fun!
