"Lacy Waves Afghan" which is free from Bernat. It used six skeins of Super Value yarn.
I used colours: 07469 Honey, 53522 Redwood Heather, 53243 Forest Green
I knit the pattern as instructed and had no trouble following . Row 8, where you start the decreases and increases needs some extra attention.
I did try it out one night while watching reading, and it is super warm. I'll be giving it to the newly weds once they return from their honeymoon.
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the
progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy
the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit
their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the
cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
I've been wandering around the web this week, and I see a lot of stitching going on. The weather here is changing, the light is fading and it's getting dark so much earlier. It makes me want to lurk inside and either read or stitch, or better yet, listen to an audio book while stitching. Who else listens to audio books while their hands are busy stitching? Do you have a favourite book/author/narrator that you keep coming back to?
I am constantly switching authors, though I will admit to loving the voice characterisation of Jim Dale. I first listened to him read Peter and The Starcatchers by Dave Berry and Ridley Pearson. It may be a youth book, but I was captivated. I listened to it at least two times. I've finished my current book and am looking forward to starting to listen to Partials by Dan Wells, read by Julia Whelan.
Mister Linky is waiting below for a link to your current needlework post, or to a link to your favourite book/audio book.
