The Crickets Sing For Anamaria Afghan

The above afghan – The Crickets Sing for Anamaria by Emma Bunton – I started on August 1, 2015. I am using size US 6 needles, after knitting a swatch in US 10 and US 8 and not caring for the fabric. My presumption is that the yarn is from Newton’s Yarn Country as it is on a big ol’ cone. It is based on the pattern Thesis Blanket by Phoebe Garrett. Emily Ocker’s circular cast-on method was easy-peasy, but if I was going to make this again, I might just start with four stitches versus the 12 required by the pattern. I can officially state that I am not a fan of magic loop or knitting in the round, unless the number of stitches is sufficient to be held on the needles without constant manipulation.

The afghan below – Picasso Visita El Planeta De Los Simios by Adam & The Ants – Afghan that I started yesterday. This is a scrapghan that is being created from all my wool/wool blend scraps: MadelineTosh, Newton’s Yarn Country Hand-Dyed by me, Cascade 220, etc. I am loving it so far. I will be challenged add more colors in a way that they compliment the afghan.
