The Atrocity

There is a story in my family about the time Grandma had her house 'done' by an interior decorator. The living room was formal, low-slung and the furniture was all white and gold-except for one tall wing chair upholstered in a green/black toile. It was the one piece that kept things from being too matchy-matchy as we would say today. The decorator called it The Atrocity, and stressed that every room needed one.

I am taking a cue from this design philosophy and including an Atrocity in my shipment of afghan squares to Kay for the Oliver's Blanket fund raiser. This one square does not match in any way the others I've made, but I know that other knitters have made brightly colored squares to go with it. I've also made a set of mitered squares, just because. Kay should have fun working with these.
