My current knitting project is a couch blanket for myself, it's a patch quilt style, meaning lots of squares sewn together and then a border around the whole thing. the pattern is from this site :
I am making some slight adjustments to the pattern to make it from a baby blanket to a couch blanket... bigger squares, more squares, a couple extra colors, etc.
It's going to be a bit of a time consuming project, but that's ok, it's something I can slowly pick at here and there, in between projects, etc.
This pattern is good practice for different pattern techniques, learning a lot of new textures.
I have since finished this square, I greatly enjoy the basket stitch pattern, was pretty fast to knit also.
Now, I am onto a green one with a different stitch pattern, it's not as exciting..... reminds me of grass in a late 80's ~ early 90's video game hahaha.
