On the Needles Friday

Not a very productive knitting week.  A few rows of this and a few rows of that.  I mentioned several posts ago that I was working on the Great American Aran Afghan project at my LYS.  This is the 3rd block that the instructor chose.  I love the bobbles in this block.

 
 Not much progress on my socks.  But at class last night we decided to start a sock club!  At least I will have one dedicated knitting time for socks each week.
 

 
 
I did knit a sample for the shop using Malabrigo.  I knit 5 inches of several different patterns.  That is where my knitting time went.  Once the sample is done and goes to the shop we get "paid" with a skein of the yarn.   This is part of the sample.
 
And this is yarn that is now part of my stash.

 
 
My next sample swatch will be knit with Ella Rae Cozy Soft.

  3. Your sample is beautiful. Love the colors of your "stash payment yarn". That is a good deal for payment. Wish one of our shops did something similar.

    1. The sock yarn reminds me of Easter candy. Must be that time of year.
