What knitting is this you ask? The promised Monkey Socks? Fools, all of you. It’s the blanket square I’m working for my office’s Warm Up America! blanket inspired by Knitting for Peace. I’m even trying to recruit a few co-workers to knit a square or two by promising to teach them to knit over drinks in the next few weeks.

Ah yes, the solace of knitting . . .
