As some of my favourite UK detective shows (Morse, Lewis, Poirot to name a few) are currently being recycled in Australia, I needed a simple knit project while watching them, as it is impossible for me to sit and not make something. This knee rug/throw was made some years ago in one piece but was always very heavy as I used three strands of yarn. So decided to recycle as it is a hand dyed alpaca/wool yarn but it needed to be all pulled apart first. This is the progress so far... Not sure I really like it much...The squares are very boring.  Any helpful suggestions? Maybe add some squares in solid colours?

Alternate squares of some kind or even some contrasting joining strips. We have the same taste in TV shows.

i am going to echo the previous comment - in that my first idea was to use contrasting yarn when you join them.... maybe pick up stitches and do a round of log cabining?

or you could embroider some sort of swirly/leafy design into them?

Same here.. love the shows... but must have something to make.. I like the idea of choosing different colours for the joining of the squares..:))
