I finished this Nine Patch awhile ago. It’s not in the Mason Dixon Knitting book, but it’s from the blog, and a lot of the knit-a-longer are making it. I’m not the huge fan of mittered squares that so many of the KAL people seem to be, but I figured everyone else is doing it, so I did. I do like how it looks, but oh the weaving in of the ends! There were so many!
I’ll probably do more of these but not right away. I think I picked up the stitches ok. Since I”m a novice knitter I have a hard time with the right vs wrong side and exactly how to pick up. But it turned out ok.
This whole set went to a guy friend as gift, I think the colors are very guy-friendly
