Yarn, So Many Possibilities, Reading

 

I've begun a project with all my fun colors.  Though these mocked mitered squares will make an afghan at some point.  I'm trying to decide how to arrange them.  Here's one possibility.  with the same color on the coutside 
Or the common color in the inside

Or stripes vertical or horizontal, sorry must have moved as this first picture is blurry.  Common color right left right etc.

Or the common color going the same direction?

Not sure what I think, but am interested in your thoughts and preferences.  One idea is to do one of grouping of 4 and then have 2 large triangles on either side (doubling the size).

Might not be able to decide until more squares are completed.  Then there's the pinwheel design idea.

A fascinating book!
Another WWII book, but focused on a woman!  Ladies do yourselves a favor and read this book.  This is a true story.  Women can be awesome when given a chance.  I won't do a review, don't want to give anything away.

Cutting these post a bit short, as I know everyone is rushing with last minute things to get done for the holiday season

  1. I think my comment was deleted. My first attempt was that your blocks remind me of naval flags (that are really words). Just a thought.

  2. My husband said the same thing Anni. The one with the common color going the same direction, I think. Thanks for the visit.

  5. I wish I could offer some amazing insight on your project but this is way above my pay grade. Best of luck. I look forward to seeing your final product. I will pass along the book recommendation to my wife as she enjoys that genre. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Sandy. Take care.

    1. I think I've eliminated the design that's flips left and right with the common color; but beyond that, still not sure. I'm moving ahead with making the squares and will keep laying them out to see what I think.

    1. I'm leaning towards one of block ideas thus far. Will continue to make the squares and see what I think as I have more to look at.

  11. My wife is a quilter and it's always great fun watching her put pieces of fabric together to come up with a new design - not a talent I have!

    1. That's cool David, this afghan will look like a quilt, I believe once it's done. Will be awhile though, knitting is time consuming. Thanks for the visit.
