I've finally taken a photo of my July squares which I blocked this morning and are drying at the moment. Again, some lovely designs.
I knit these at the beginning of the month but, lazy mare that I am, didn't block them straight away. The thought of that lovely sock yarn, though, spurred me on! :0)
Now I'm looking forward to getting August's. ;0)

Followed immediately by, um, the other one ...
and because I thought it was so cool, here's a close-up of "the other one" (gosh, Debby, I should remember the names but it's late and I'm tired ...)
Finally, here's how much yarn I had left over.
Needless to say, though I'll say it anyway, I was a bit *nervous* toward the end. Yup, that is, indeed, a nickel for scale. I'm off to the mountains (with knitting) and I look forward to finding a package in the mail when we get back!

I haven't posted any of my Under Cover Blocks because I was having an unbelieveably hard time with 2 of the patterns, the only two patterns I attempted. I started again July 3 and had all 6 squares finished July 9th. I'm not sure why it took 4 attempts to get Diamond Brocade and Lucky Bamboo correct. Here you can see my finished Dimpled Delight and Basket of Yarn. Now, that I have gotten my square mojo, I loving working with O-wool and knitting these squares!

Now, may I offer you a bribe to get out the O'Wool and make a square or two. We are having a drawing for July. Everyone who posts a picture of their finished July squares will be included in a drawing for a skein of J. Knits Super Wash Me Light sock yarn. The color is Reno and it is beautiful.
So if you have been thinking about those squares, now is the time to finish up, post your picture, and get ready for August.
Don't let me have that nightmare again!

This picture is the Right Side of your Woven Fun pattern. Row 1 should read Row 1(WS)and Row 2 starts the right side.
The purl side of your Woven Fun is the WRONG Side. I go over and over these patterns to be sure they are correct and I do apologize for this mistake. I will send a corrected version with your next shipment.
Could I blame this on the socks? Do you think they took over my computer late one night, giggling and laughing, put the purl side as the right side? They would think that was funny.....

Did I misunderstand something in the instructions or will this 'improve' as I proceed? I have about 2 inches of work done.
BTW: The cabled pattern square is done and blocked; it looks great!
Thank you for any advice that anyone can offer on Woven Fun.

Last month it showed up on the doorstep SPOT ON the first day of the month. I think I must be doing penance for knitting up so many socks and burning through last month's squares to quickly. :-( Yarn Grove ladies - did all the packages already go out? Fellow club members - am I the only one still waiting for the package? (ok, so maybe it'll come today ...)

Anyway, thanks again for 2 lovely block patterns this month - and the cable needle was much appreciated. :0)

Thanks to everyone who posted pictures of their squares. Your new shipment is on the way, so get ready to put away the socks.
