Brickstreet Blocking

This is not the best picture of this afghan, but  I needed to thread the needle with this one.  I had a bit of a deadline.  Since this picture I have adjusted the afghan more as you look at it , you understand where it needs to stretch to.  It became wider than longer, but it does not really something that matters, as it is supposed to be a rectangle. I used some recycled yarn from the hemlock ring I made a while ago.  This brown yarn is Cascade Eco wool and it looks like it is perfect for this kind of border.  I even doubled the strands, it is very nice to the touch.  Hope to have it dry by the evening, it is with a fan on and today is not raining.  Hope to show you a better picture in the next few days.  Thanks for stopping by!

You bet it is almost done, but it does still need to be stretched to size. I will post photos of my blocking Afghan. Lots of fun making this Afghan, even if it is a bit monotonous at the end. I hope you are having a great Cyber Sunday! Thanks for stopping by!

Brickstreet in the Works

This is my latest project in the works.  It is a very nice afghan by WestKnits aka Stephen West. The only problem with this Afghan is that the chart needs to be updated.  It has an error, that is easily fixed by printing the chart in black and white and then using a red marker to see where your repetitions really are.  In the end is OK, but annoying, nevertheless the pattern is gorgeous .  I am using sports weight yarn from KNit Picks, (double strands) with a US 11 .  I actually made gauge so I went with it.  I am almost done, but I wanted to share the work in progress as of some time ago.  I'll talk more about it later.  I hope your Thanksgiving was as pleasant as mine and that you have a great Holiday Season. Thanks for stopping by!
