On the Needles Friday

I am plugging away on my projects.  I know I am making progress but it is slow.
My Cape Cod is lovely to work on.  I love the yarn and the pattern.
And it is beginning to look like a sweater!!!  YEAH!!!
I am working on Block 17 of the Great American Aran Afghan. 
It is the border of a block that is grated together.  I have already finished it once but I did a terrible job on the grafting and decided to redo it.  I did the provisional cast on with a larger needle.  Wish me luck with the grafting.

On the Needles and Stash Report

This will be a multi tasking post!  My attempts at blogging need to be better organized.  But I have been busy working on my GAAA (Great American Aran Afghan).  I am doing this along with a couple of friends.  Another block is finished and another one begun.

Church Block
The blocks will look  much better once they are blocked.  This was a fun block to work on.

The next one I am working on is a little tricky but I think I have the hang of it.  I needed to purchase more yarn to finish this project.  Fortunately, my LYS owner had put aside several skeins of the yarn. 

I made a little progress on my Cape Cod.

So while nothing has been finished I am making steady progress.

Yarn in this week:  910 yards
Yarn out this week:  0 yards
In YTD: 8014 yar
Out YTD: 6538 yards

On and Off the Needles

Another week has flown by!  Do you ever ask yourself  "where does the time go"?
I finished another block of the my Great American Aran Afghan.  And hope to finish another one today.

I am making slow and steady progress on my Cape Cod.  It probably doesn't look much further along than last week.  But I am almost ready to separate for the sleeves.

On the Needles Friday

I am not sure I can even say slowly and steady progress.  But there was some knitting and I am happy with the few stitches I managed to do.

I made a little progress on my Cape Cod.  And I managed to cast on another block of The Great American Aran Afghan.  With one cataract surgery down and one to go, I am not sure how much of anything I will get done this month

Get it done July

I had hoped to be more productive this month.  But I did dabble a little here and there.  My first cataract surgery put a crimp in my plans.  I will be having my second eye done in a few weeks.  So I think my plans for July are ambitious.
