With only 14 weeks left to Christmas, I thought I'd better get a wriggle on with my aunty's afghan. So I will be (almost) exclusively knitting squares for it till I get it finished.
I am now officially halfway through. This is my 8th square - Barbara McIntire's from the Great American Aran Afghan (see previous post for details).
I love the central celtic braid cable - it's very easy but looks so effective. I used 5mm KnitPicks Options needles and Cascade 220 in Oatmeal (I *love* this colour!). This needs hardly any blocking as it's almost exactly 12" square so I won't lose any of the lovely texture.
I've just started my next one - Ann McCauley's Bobbledy Aran square - this time in Ice Mint (turquoise). Did I mention that I love big bobbles?! ;0)
