Thank you for asking about decreasing on a rectangular c2c. I made one as a stash buster. At one point I realized it was a wonky shape and proceeded to switch to other instructions. Still seemed an odd shape but I kept going. Surprisingly, the colors were more appealing to me than I had thought they would be. Folded it is very nice but unfolded, there is no name for that shape. It is now used in our old VW camper. I did put a pin on the decrease edge. I may never know what I did wrong but with all the helpful comments, I finally have the courage to try again. I was too embarrassed to admit the mess I made of what everyone considers an easy pattern..

I thought I would see a recipe.

She is absolutely beautiful. Hope you get many opportunities to visit over the years. The dress is sweet. It would be a joy to knit for this little one. Someone can probably give you ideas appropriate to the weather where they live.

Beautiful colors and patterns. You can’t go wrong no matter how you assemble. I love your color combinations.

Beautiful and unusual stitch pattern. Looking forward to seeing blocked shawl.

My mistake. I meant semi-automatic, assault weapons. They were banned in 1994. The ban expired in 2004. Studies show the ban was associated with a reduction in mass-shooting related homicides during the 1994-2004 period. Restrictions now vary from state to state. No need to scream!

In reference to deshka’s comment.

Every attempt made by the Obama administration to regulate firearms was blocked by the Republicans. We would be in a better place had legislation including tougher background checks, the banning of automatic weapons, etc. been passed. McConnell is again working to block these bills. NRA contributions, $1.26 million!

Saved the pattern. Thank you. We did buckets full of water balloons when grandchildren last visited. It was their chore to clean up afterwards. Unfortunately, we did not supervise. The next day we found tiny bits and pieces glued to the deck. Most are still there. Hopefully, they will wear away in time. I guess heat baked them onto the wood.

Well written. Agree completely. Thank you.

Hilltopper, I agree. That is why I do not shop Hobby Lobby, Chick-Fil-A or Walmart.

In the shops catering to ex-pats here in the states, many of the items are “junk food”, Hob Nobs and many other sweets. When living abroad, we miss the comfort food of our homeland. Our SIL is from Europe and is constantly trying to find replacements for the bakery items he knew growing up. Aldi here, PA, carries many European treats that are difficult to find elsewhere.

Happy Canada Day. My son is nearing the completion of the process for permanent residency. He has lived in Vancouver and is now in Toronto. The company he works for is opening a studio in Montreal and he may make the move. We are pleased that he is applying for residency. Wonderful people and country.

Thank you SuzieQ and Jessica Jean. Once I get some squares together, I would like to try the joining techniques suggested. It seems it would be much neater than the way I stitch mine together. Also, I hate sewing.

Thank you. I may be wrong but this does not look as though it would require as much finishing as many scrap projects. Couldn’t ends be worked in as each piece is either knitted or crocheted. When enough pieces completed, weave into square and crochet edge. Of course, there remains the chore of stitching squares together. I do like the idea of knitting up scraps at the end of a project and throwing in a basket until ready to begin squares. The scrap afghans that I have made are either granny squares or simple knit stripe patterns. Thanks again for something different.
