August is good for wool, too


Taking a break from writing out lesson plans to knit - and wool is so much easier on my hands and wrists than cotton. I'm starting the squares for Tom's blanket. They want squares of purples, greens, and blues with black and gray to tone it down. The squares are 8x8 inches, knit on size 7 needles. They'll be arranged in a pattern similar to this: Trip Around the World quilt.

I enjoy knitting with cotton, but it does tire out my hands. Wool is so much friendlier to knit with.
