52 Week Challenge

Whew, almost didn't get my pics downloaded to my comp, since the comp decided it didn't want to. Thank heaven for alternative means and sheer luck that I had them!
I based them on the cool pattern seen here before, but I added 10 stitches to each row and 7 rows to each color block, which explains why my yardage is different than others who have made them. I am figuring 400+ yards, as I used 99% of one 223yd skein (Paton's Classic Wool), 90% of another, and maybe 5% of the 3rd one (whatever it needed to make 4 squares). Next time, I will follow the pattern... well, maybe, lol. They are a hair wide for me, but that's okay :o) In the meantime, I have started a felted hat; it won't have enough yardage on it's own for February, but I want to try another pair of felted slippers and those will make it up. Love all the posts and projects!
