Knitting Bricks

I've been obsessed with red brick recently. This is handy, because Belfast is full of it, so I am often to be spotted loitering around the Springfield Road taking crap photos of walls. Knitting one seems like the only sensible thing to do, so I've gone through the whole Get Knitted website looking for vaguely brickish, worsted weight wool. The dark, mottled skein is a shade of Cascade 220 Paints that made me squee in an empty house due to its worn-cement-like properties. Having measured several bricks I've gone with 9" by 3" oblongs, which I will knit in between other projects in various non-curling stitch patterns. By next winter I should have enough for either a blanket sized wall, or a wall sized blanket.
