This will be my last month with a post for the squares for my block-a-month afghan – in December, I’ll (hopefully) post the finished afghan! I’m not looking forward to sewing all of the afghan squares together, but I’m really excited to have the finished project. And I’m very happy that I decided to weave in all of the ends as I went along, so I don’t have to do it all at once at the end. I’m pretty sure I would just never have finished the blanket if I had left all the weaving in to the end.
One of the 12” squares this month is Winter Wildflowers by Stacey Lee. I used Malabrigo Rios in Fresco y Seco, Sunset, and Glazed Carrot. This square took forever to finish, and I think all the flowers are sort of unnecessary, but, hey, at least it’s pretty unique.
The other 12” square is very simple, but pretty. It’s the Ilmatar square by Sari Åström, and I made it in colorways Purple Mystery, Lettuce, and Archangel.
And, finally, the 6” square is called Raised Bunchberry and is by Marie Segares. I used Lettuce, Archangel, and Fresco y Seco. Even after making this whole afghan, I love working with Rios. It’s so nice, and all the colors are gorgeous.
In addition to getting this blanket finished, I have another milestone coming up – the 1 year anniversary of this blog! I wrote my very first post last November 28th. I’ve really enjoyed having this blog so far! I’m going to try to write up a bit of an anniversary post on the 28th, so look forward to that.
I just arrived in Munich for a conference a few hours ago, so I’m also going to be doing some exploring of German yarn in the next week. It’s so cold here, and it might even snow! I’m so excited to get some real winter.
