I finally got my own copy of Mason-Dixon Knitting by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne! Practically every project within is enticing, but I settled upon the idea of using up the leftover cotton from the Lizard Ridge afghan and trying my hand at Log Cabin. I love the geometry of modular knitting and Mason-Dixon is full of possibilities. Modular knitting offers the perfect balance between being interesting but not so intricate as to require a stitch chart. In other words, the perfect salve after a hectic day. What craft soothes your spirit?
