Year of Projects Week 05




Well what can I say? Australian Open Tennis....aaaah perfect for knitting.

I was playing around with the completed 12 blocks for the afghan and I think I need more blocks. So we'll be going shopping me thinks ;-) As is it is 3' x 4' (36" x 48") not quite big enough. I do like the way it looks though.




With the tennis going I've made great strides with the shawl. The needles have not arrived. I checked the shipping info and realized that I've been in too much of a hurry...it should be here next week LOL. I hope...or I may have to squeeeeeeeze all the stitches onto this one. Could get awkward, but I'm undaunted ;-)




And with the tennis finishing this weekend, I hope to start on the Feel Better Friend doll next week.

The afghan I swatched last week will definitely have to wait for the long circular needles though.

Waiting for the mail is SO hard! I'm waiting for a sock club shipment and it's like having ants in my pants. SQUISH those stitches!!

It's amazing how you can arrange the same block to make so many different patterns. Quite a project too....pat yourself on the back for that one!
Your shawl yarn is so gorgeous...it's going to amazing when you finish it!
