Crazy for Miters

What do you do when you have a ton of left over yarn and the book "Mason Dixon Knitting." You make the Mitered Square Blanket! 

I absolutely love mitered squares and when I saw this pattern, I immediately wanted to make it. I had plenty of left over yarn from making the "Modern Log Cabin Blanket" and the Modern Log Cabin Baby Blanket." 

Halfway through the project I wanted to have every square be a different color combination and I was able to do it. Not one of the 80 squares are the same. I did, however, have to purchase a few more colors of Vanna's Choice in order to accomplish the task.

I had finished this project months ago, but didn't have the space do to the blocking. After my son left for college, I was provided the room (his room actually) to do the blocking. What you see if not how the blanket will be laid out. That is going to take some more careful and artistic consideration. At least I have most of it done for now. Then comes the "fun" part of sewing all these blocks together. Yeah, right!!!!!
