The Blanket: Some Bits

A log-cabin bit that may yet get dramatically increased in size:

A funny silly piece that is sort of a mini-version of the whole blanket – experimenting with different shapes to make smaller bits that get joined with the other bits:

A miter, a bias square, and two garter stitch squares made of 4 smaller squares each, using the two primary colors of the blanket (the copper and the green) paired with the same set of 4 accent colors, and knit and joined (picked up) in the same fashion. In fact, everything’s the same except in one, the accents are striped in every 2nd row, and in the other, the accents are striped in every 2nd row only for the last few rows of each square.

Very nice mini-blanket! And don't worry Amber, for the love of all things beautiful I decided about ten minutes after posting that I would NOT use fishing wire. I'll just be using noro silk garden.
