Your front porch is a beautiful place. I hope you sit there and enjoy the beauty of the flowers. I would knit there if I had a place like that. Thank you for the wonderful pictures.

Pretty pictures! Thanks for posting. I saw your post over in Wendy's comments, and I wanted to drop you a quick line about miters.

There is more than 1 method to doing them, but basically you either pick up or cast on the max number of stitches in the square and work back and forth with a centered double decrease on every other row until you're down to 1 stitch, then bind off. Then you cast on 1/2 the number of stitches in your next square, and pick up the other 1/2 from the edge of the completed square, and begin decreasing down again. A great pattern to learn Mitered Squares (and rectangles) is the Rambling Rows Pattern from Cottage Creations - No affiliation - but I knitted this afghan for a baby, and it's pretty fun and interesting, and the shape changes (from small and large squares to rectangles) are just enough to keep your mind interested. Plus the end result looks pretty quilty. There are pictures up of my RR in the archives at my blog, in the June 2006, I think. (www.knotwattewethink.com). I hope this was informative, and Wendy will probably give a much, much better explanation of it on her blog, she's a great explainer of things. Have a great evening, and thanks again for the lovely pictures!
