Square #18 Spiraling Squares

To me this is one of the most appealing squares in the Great American Afghan. That being said, it's a doozie! I lost track how many times I started this over. To say that it's clumbsy is a huge understatement. The square starts in the center with eight stitches divided over four needles. I had a pretty good start after several attempts, only to learn in class I was doing the M1 increases totally wrong. I think I am on the right track now. Eventually I'll need to switch to a circular needle, but for now I am enjoying this method. Problem... pattern calls for size 8 needles, but I have none. I am knitting incredibly tightly on my size 9 needles. Hope the square turns out close to size.
