Justin's square

Cindy over at Warming Grace is asking for 5-inch blue squares to make a blanket for Justin, a little boy who has liver cancer. If you have any chance at all, and maybe some extra blue yarn hanging around, please visit her site and see if you might have the time to quickly knit up a square.Here is my little square. The pattern is called Polperro, from the book 200 Knitted Blocks. I knit this up with Caron Simply Soft Quick. It was only 16 stitches across and 24 rows. I was able to get it done while waiting in the parking lot for ZimDee to get out of preschool.

Now I can cast on for my Mock Croc Socks!

There is still a movie line contest in the works. The previous lines were:

"Listen! Do you smell something?"


"This chick is toast!"

Here are some additional lines:

"Does anybody want to play Parcheesi?"

"What a lovely singing voice you must have."

"Do you have any hobbies?"
"I collect spores, molds, and fungus."

Good luck to all.

Ohh! I know that movie! Never done the movie line quiz before. Do I just spot out my answer here or do I need to submit it somewhere?

BTW, the crock socks are fun, so far, and quick. I've managed to get a bit accomplished despite having a nearly-two-year-old running about.

Thankfully, he's never been real interested in my yarn- but the kitties! Arg!

Yes, Angela, just post the answer here in the comments section. If you're right I'll write it up in a new post and you'll get a prize.

You know I'm going to take a stab and say Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. HAHAH yea, I don't know what it is. But that parcheesi line is sounds familiar... hm.

Unka Shaina I love seeing all the knitting you've been accomplishing! And they look so professional too! (Well duh... my aunt IS a pro) :-)
