One little square

I'm so slow I could only get one square done for the blanket. I chose the Candle Flame pattern out of A Treasury of Knitting Patterns. I've always been inspired by Dylan Thomas' Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night and picked a pattern I thought would serve as a symbol of what that poem commands.

It looks great, Raymie!

one square is perfect - the important thing is that you contribute...and that you remember to take time to write a note or card to Jason as well. Get it in the mail (remember, I need these by May 30, 2009) so that I can get to assembling!!!

I love this stitch and think your square looks great. I fell in love with this stitch after seeing an afghan done in it years ago. Well done!

Love it! I'm glad for your color choice, too. I just started a shawl in this stitch today!

What a wonderful inspiration. I've done the walking tour of the Village in NYC of Thomas' haunts and stays. Great job.

Your square is beautiful, I too, was only able to complete one square. I tried photographing it but the dark navy color just didn't do well.

Beautiful knitting, Raymie. The sentiments and caring you knit into the square are the main thing, overall. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

What a beautiful pattern that is, and a beautiful thought to go with it.

I really like this pattern. The color of yarn shows off the detail beautifully. I think this would also make a great afgan or scarf pattern. Great work!
