Grandma Purl's square

I love being part of the knit-blogging community - I know I've said it before but the internet really is a great tool for connecting people (when used for good!).

Here is my contribution to Knit a Square for Grandma Purl - I've used my favourite colours (red and purple - is more purple than appears in the pic) plus some beige/stone to soften it out. It's the first time I've knit using two colours (the red and beige part) at once and I think you can tell - I just couldn't get the cross-over to look less obvious...I used a good Australian classic, Patons Totem - not only is machine washable, but is Australian wool and reminds me of my childhood - it was one of my mother's often-used yarns.

Off to the post office today, I hope it arrives in time!

i see you've judiciously covered the "offending" colour join with a well placed postcard
