Lines + Squares Baby Blanket | Purl Soho
One of my favorite books growing up was When We Were Very Young by A.A. Milne, a little collection of children's poems. The one I always loved best was called "Lines and Squares".

Tomorrow I will use more shades of brown to make the darning look a bit like a landscape. an awesome technique to repair socks…
