Mitered squares here...

Honestly, I think we have enough colors of yarn to make each square a different color combination.

That bright yellow is causing me some concern. The picture doesn't show it, but it is not a delicate yellow, nor is it a cheery yellow. It's a very violent yellow, somewhere in the area of mustard and finding the right accompanying color to tone it down is taking some time. Navy blue helped it, and we're thinking brown or gray might work, too.

(This may be Penny's fault. She was with me when I bought that yellow yarn. I suppose she was too well-mannered to ask me, "Why on earth are you buying that screaming, obnoxious shade of yellow?" Clearly I was not asking myself the right questions.)

If the picture is any indication, the bright yellow won't be a problem when combined with the right colors.

I beg your pardon? Since we seldom agree on colors anyway, it wouldn't have occurred to me to stop you! However, if you're giving me free reign from here on out . . . . lol!

Well, I do recall a couple of times when you at least raised your eyebrow at yarn I intended to buy: the infamous "Girl Scout" colors sock yarn (which I did knit and do wear) and the green, turquoise and orange cotton yarn I bought to knit a sleeveless top, regretted it, and purged from the stash recently.

So although I may not LISTEN to you, I do not forget that you try to give me good advice!

I love knitting mitered squares, too. I am amazed at your perfect stripes you have incorporated into them! That yellow will probably tone down in a blanket. It's going to be beautiful!
