I have been doing lots of knitting on my star shaped afghan. I have passed row 91 and now have over 700 stitches on the needle. Measures 24 1/2 inches from the pink centre to the outside edge. That's a heck of a lot considering I started with 4 stitches. I visited with my sister on the weekend and she sent me home with about 6 additional balls of yarn, mostly fancy ones.
This next photo shows the some of the 'fancy' yarns that I am including:
From top to bottom:
Bernat Bling Bling - Cabaret Crimson
Red Heart Hunny - Pink Blush
Hot Pink Eyelash yarn - maker unknown
Patons Cha Cha - Vegas
Patons Silverlash - Pink Champagne
Bernat Chenille Sherbet - Cherry Splash
Moda Dea Tutu - Raspberry
Moda Dea Aerie - Pink **
Patons Glittallic - Maroon Shine **
Unknown Chenille - white/pink
Bernat Matrix - Web Wines
Unknown Pink Eyelash
Bernat Boa - Flamingo
** These are my two favourites and of course they are discontinued. oh drat.
Last week after posting my progress, Linda at Scrapmaster , commented that the afghan reminded her of the Citadel in Halifax
For more information on this site, visit the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site of Canada website where I borrowed this picture.
There are numerous star shaped forts around the world. I quick google search on 'star shaped fortifications yielded many.
I'll be back with further updates on this project.
