Scrap Quilt

I noted this Rowan knitalong was starting while in France over Easter - but I've decided not to invest in more wool but use my own oddments from the attic. I am not sure how it will work out. However, I am determined to try and match the colours as I see them on the web - without actually checking out the recommended Rowan Pure Wool Worsted in a shop - I am sure if I saw the intended colours I would want to make it properly - and since I don't actually need a blanket, that would rather defeat the object.

I have decided to go down a needle size and use double knitting yarn. Here are the first two squares - which I have knitted in a vintage mix of Phildar yarns.
