Hokie Bird and Squares

This morning I mailed off my Hokie Healing squares to Mosaic Yarn Shop. Please, if you can, this is turning into a beautiful project: Take a look at some of the squares they have already gathered!
I worried a little while knitting these. I kept obsessively checking the measurements and worrying that the yarn wasn't nice or soft enough (no local yarn store and all). I obsessed over the Hokie Bird chart because I had never done intarsia before (and ended up falling safely back into semi-fair isle/ semi-intarsia).
Finally I settled into the thought that it is the action of knitting that becomes the prayer, and I relaxed. About that time I noticed that the squares were 32 stitches long. Huh.
