The Endless Afghan - The Sixteenth Square

With all the rain, I had time to work on the Great American Aran Afghan. I chose this square designed by Judy Sumner because I like spiders.

It was actually quite fitting for vacation because there were several large Orb Weavers making webs by our front deck which I enjoyed watching while knitting.

Here is a close up of the spider....

And the web with a bug...

And finally the leaves and branches with a "X-O" border. I think this is my favorite square so far.

I looovvvee the square! I, too, like spiders, except I do find them rather surprising when one runs across the floor at an unexpected time! :)

Absolutely beautiful. But why did it have to be spiders?!

I love this square! And how appropriate for October, LOL. I've been enjoying the rain, myself, but the sunny weekend was spectacular!

This afghan is going to be stunning! I can't wait to see it all pieced together.

Your squares are all beautiful, but I especially enjoy the complexity in that one. Lovely! Perfect for Halloween.
