The backs of the bordered LTKA squares

Heather asked about the backs of the squares. They aren't as pretty and, in particular, the border looks a lot better from the front. I'm resigned.

My first 4 bordered 'Learn to knit afghan' squares


I'm knitting this afghan in Brown Sheep worsted. I'll be adding another lilac colour but am not sure about the red. I may replace it. I'm really enjoying the variety of patterns in the 'Learn to knit afghan' book.

Am not familiar with flickr - will take a look at it soon.

Prize gratefully received

How exciting - a parcel filled with knitting goodies - my prize for posting the most swatches. Lavender scented sweater soap - mmm, Harmony knitting stitches book - I have this great book but I know someone who will really appreciate it - so it will be fun to pass it on. Darning needles - very useful and my particular favourite - the 'Gauge-o-knit' - thoughtfully the metric one. I'm looking forward to trying this out. I think it will be invaluable when I want to use stitches I've learnt in a sweater. This prize was incredibly generous and kind and it felt really good to get it. Thank you, Angela, thank you.

I started and completed this one yesterday while having an 8 hour "24" marathon with Erik and Shannon. We had 8 hours left and I used every minute of it knitting and frogging and reknitting this square. It really makes me want to make several more Sanrio squares!
