On the needles Friday

I finished Block #6 for my Great American Aran Afghan.


Progress on my ESK Mitered Square KAL is slow and steady.  I will start a white skein after this green skein of yarn.  I hope I finish by the Dec 31 deadline!
My last project on the needles is a sample for my LYS. I don't often knit a lace pattern and this one is not that difficult even though I had to cast on 9 times!!!!!  Never have so few stitches (20) given me so much trouble but I am well on my way.
I am off to visit Judy's site to see what others are knitting, crocheting, spinning.
OOPS  Forgot my last picture: 


  1. Your Aran blanket is going to be gorgeous. Thankfully you only had to cast on 20 stitches the nine times! It is frustrating, but your shawl is going to be lovely.

  2. That shawl is going to be beautiful, the blanket also. Good job hanging in on the shawl; hope it continues to behave!

  3. Your shawl is outstanding and so worth the 9 times starting. I know EXACTLY how you feel because I only had 5 stitches to my start and it took me 3 tries after I had knitted 5 inches or more to realize I was doing something wrong. It is such a beautiful yarn. I love your Aran blanket. I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes together.
