Progress Report

At the time I took these pictures I had completed 20 of the 24 squares in the afghan Crochet-Along. Now I'm done with the 21st squares. We're heading down the home stretch!

Each square is supposed to be 12" x 12", but I'm not very good at measuring, so I think they'll be more like 12.5" to 13" square by the time I'm finished. Which puts each blanket at around, what, 6 feet by 4.5 feet? Something like that. Although math isn't my strong suit. (And I majored in accounting, why?)

  1. These look great! I still love that red, pink, yellow and orange one the best. It's kind of Brady Bunch.

  2. Pretty! They look very labor, and yarn, intensive. :)

  5. Ha - I like that, Sistine Chapel of knitting. :-)

    And now I'm wondering, too, what you are going to do with the finished blankets. I'm pretty sure at one time you told us, but I can't remember.

  6. I still like the red, yellow and fuchsia one the best. It looks so Central American, color-wise. I have a friend who has some molas in those colors, and they're just fabulous. You'd have a good knitting day here, today. We got about another 5", and I thought it was clearing out, but no such luck. We're back to gloom, mizzle and drist. Sigh.

  7. I've been impressed with each square you have shown us. But to see so many together is truly overwhelming. Nice job.

  9. What an undertaking. I'm in the minority with the first one as my favourite. This is a deeply thoughtful and personal gift. You are so generous.
