Not only is this an entry, it's an entry with actual knitting content! Granted it's five more yellow squares, but hey, at least it's knitting.

First up are two squares based on dishcloth patterns (I'll dig up the URL's later). The first is a sun, because my mom wanted a sunflower, and this is the closest I could find.

And next is the state of Kansas, because my mom was born in Kansas, and this afghan is for her 'Kansas' themed porch (think lots of yellow).

The next three are all from the Barbara Walker Treasuries. First, a lace heart.

Next, a lace butterfly.

And finally, just because this particular chart amuses me so, a turtle.

The really fun thing about the turtle is that it really seems to lift right off the cloth. I've taken a picture of the side view so you can see what I mean.

The next steps will be weaving in all the loose ends, and then spreading all twenty squares out on the floor and trying to arrange them in the best cofiguration possible. I still am not entirely sure how I intend to join all these squares together, but I figure I've got at least a few days of dithering over which square should go where before I have to worry about that.

Oooh, which volume has the turtle? My grandmother has a collection of turtles, and I'd bet money she doesn't have that one!

That's going to be charming. i do think I will have to make something with that turtle in it, for the boy, of course.
Thanks for the blogiversary wishes.

I've missed you! I hoped it meant you were busy designing and knitting. Wow - what results! I can hardly wait to see your finished masterpiece assembled!

That turtle is SO cool. (I followed you over from Knitting Doctor, due to your mention of having a black cat...)

The turtle is SO cool! It does look like it wandered onto the sqaure and could just mosey back off of it.

Can't wait to see the whole thing put together! How's the move going? Find anything you like yet?

I came across your blog through a link on Craftster.org. I simply had to comment on the squares - the turtle one in particular. How great is that! I love it.
