The Endless Afghan -- Twenty Two Down - Eighteen to go

This block is featured in The Great North American Afghan and was designed by Deborah Newton of Providence, Rhode Island.

It was very easy to knit. I cast on while waiting for our flight from Seattle to San Jose last weekend. I was at the halfway mark when the plane touched down two hours later. I can't knit in the car (I get motion sick) so I had to wait to finish it this weekend at my Saturday morning knit together.

I blocked it Saturday afternoon and this morning I have yet another square completed! Although I am now more than halfway through my goal, there are still 18 more squares to knit. I have been thinking that I may modify my plan and add a large border and keep all the squares on the top of the bed. I 'll have to play with the measurements.

A border would save you from making more squares, but that much plain knitting might be really tedious. I love the square!

Love the latest square! I think it's one of my favourites!

What book are these from? Your work is impeccable! I can see that these patterns would be useful for more than an afgan. Just beautiful!

I get carsick knitting, too, but I still carry it around in case of traffic jams and long border lineups.
I'm 25 squares into an afghan that requires 170+ May never finish it. Yours will be a beautiful labour of love.

I found this pattern (all of the afgan blocks) are on Ravelry! WaHoo! Now if I can just get through my Sweater Workshop Sampler...

Kathy said...

I can't wait to see how you put 'em all together! ;-)

I'm finding squares are such good travelling knitting. Looking forward to seeing your finished project.

I adore the knitted square's color. It look simple yet it's cool. You've perfectly handed this work and I bowed you for that. This collection ain't just lovely but it's thoroughly impressive and I'm running through the scene of making such lovely work like this on my own soon. Hopefully. Thanks for inspiring me indeed.
