I wanted to thank everyone again for voting on my FO Friday poll. As I said in my last post, I will be trying FO Fridays for a few weeks to see if I can handle the extra posting. I usually post on Fridays, so it shouldn't be too big of a deal. I will be including a Mr Linky for those that would like to participate! I look forward to seeing all the completed projects!
I've bought a lot of yarn in the past few weeks due to sales and coupons! Look for my updated Flash Your Stash post including the Mr Linky. Feel free to flash your stash for us!
Now onto WIPW 6! (Sorry for the quality of the pictures this week. The light is starting to change earlier, which I forgot. Where did summer go?)
I've been a little determined to get further on my afghan but it's still slow going. As you can see, I finished the third block and have started the 4th and final color before I begin to repeat the pattern. I think I'm going to do one more block of each and see how long it is. I don't want this to be a HUGE afghan, so that might just be enough. Also, I'll be adding a border once it's done due to the curling of the afghan stitch. What do you think?
Look, a kitty! One of my cats, Roxy, wouldn't get out of the picture. I tried 4 times and this is the best one I could get...half a cat and my project. This is a secret project I can't give the details on because the person I'm making this for sometimes reads the blog! I'll be showing progress next week, unless it gets to the point where you can tell what it is. LOL The exciting thing about this project is check out the yarn! My local fabric store has a few skeins of yarn in the back. I looked through it and come to my surprise, discontinued yarn (Red Heart Tweed)! This yarn is perfect for this project and they had two skeins of the same dye lot. So excited! There are a few other discontinued yarns I may have to go back and grab. How can I pass it up?
