Sixty mitered squares

Only 20 more squares to go! I think I have enough yarn in the various colors to get 20 more color combinations. Unless Joan wants a striped border for the edges, I'll have to buy one more - maybe two more - skeins in one color.

I'm so glad to be nearing the finish. It's very hot today (98F/37C) with a heat index of 110F/43C. If I can find a cool corner this evening I hope to knit at least two more squares. Unfortunately, the heat is such that even while sitting in the shade on the beach at the lake wool just clings to the needles - and to the knitter. Until this heat breaks (and I pray that it does soon!) I think I'll have to return to knitting cotton dishcloths.

Amazing! I can't wait to see them all together. It has been very hot here too...and humid.

Wow, Laura. You are making amazing progress! Looks great! I wonder if you will wait for cooler weather to put it all together?!?!

I'm glad to have found the web site of a fellow reading enthusiast and knitter of projects from the first Mason-Dixon book.

I had the same thought as Meg about the weather and putting together the squares!

Waiting for cooler weather to piece it all together is certainly a tempting thought!

I may have to wait, but if I can I'd love to finish it all at once.
