This year, I am knitting myself a quilt! Together with my Ravelry cohorts Monthly Adventures, I am knitting a block a month. Each block will be 12 inch square and will have a different designer. The overall theme of the blocks will be texture and cables. I am so excited about this!

Here is the gorgeous yarn I got for the project:

It is Elann's "Superwash Chunky" in colorway 06: Sable Gray. It is soft to knit with and even softer after blocking.

The first square was designed by Julie aka Fibers on Ravelry. She is one of our fearless moderators. She presented a lovely double moss stitch square. I am using US9/5.5mm needles, cast on 52 st (including my 2 selvage sts), gauge 4.25st/inch:

This photo really does not do the yarn or block justice, but there you have it. Can't wait to see next month's block!
