Mitered Square Blanket and No Laptop

I get a lot of questions and feedback about my knit mitered square blanket. I started another blog that just deals with my yarn projects http://easycrochetpatterns.blogspot.com/ because I thought maybe a lot of the quilters weren't interested in knitting and crochet projects.    If you want my version of the pattern, you can go there and click on the tab below the banner photo and print it.  You are supposed to use your leftover sock yarn on this blanket.  Now before you get too impressed and think I've knit this many pair of socks, scroll on down.
These are all of the yarn balls that I've gotten by trading with friends, and I did buy just a few skeins of my own to do this project.
I am struggling to do this blog post, because one of the hinges on my laptop separated away from the monitor, and the edge of the monitor was sticking out through the opening.  So my laptop is winging its way to Dell, and I am using our desktop.  When I left Office Max yesterday after dropping my laptop off for FedEx pickup, it felt a bit like when we took the kids to college for the first time and left them.  So I've turned to this:
And this:

With a fresh pitcher of this:
I've been busy appliqueing on my Hearts and Flowers quilt by Kim McLean and cutting out leaves, flowers, and circles from my new Kaffe fabrics.  When my husband gets home, I'll figure out where to stick my camera SD card in this computer so I can post photos of my progress.  This computer looks so big that if I put the SD card in the wrong place, it might swallow it whole.  Off to do some stitching.

I don't know how to knit, but admire people that can. That is a cool looking blanket...it has a quilty look to it. Sorry about your laptop! Glad you have "friends" with you to help you over the hump (friends today, hips tomorrow...). I certainly have some of "those" friends...

At least you know your laptop will come home without any laundry the way children do when they go away.

Your mitered knit square blanket is amazing.

Will check out your knit blog later. I have just been wandering through some of this blog...you have some beautiful photos and some fabulous fabrics. Will look forward to see what you do with them. Hope the laptop doesnt take too long for you.

Your knitting project is lovely LuAnn :-) Do you use all kinds of yarn, or is it a certain type of wool.
