Help...can a "fried blocked" square be saved?

I finished my first square for Jason, and during blocking, I had the not so great idea of using a hot steam iron on a wet piece.

Another square off the needles

So here's my second square for the Jason blanket. I might have enough left for a third square although I'm not sure. This might be it for me. Now I get to mail them off!!!

Last month I was over knitting with my glamorous friend Thor who invited me to watch Annie M. on Knitty Gritty showing her technique for dreadlocks.

Using colours...

Am having trouble with using two colours - stranding the green colour on this reindeer behind the white when it's not being used, keeps making the stitching uneven.

LTKA Square 7

This is one of the most beautiful squares, I gues all the squares have their own beauty. Here you see the difference between garter stitch and 1 x 1 ribbing.

Scarf Exchange - One more belated

A belated thanks to my spoilee. When I first got the scarf, I thought, it's beautiful; but, thick. When will I ever use that?


I was so excited to discover this site - it's good to know we're not alone!
