I think the end is near for the OatCouture Auntie's afghan. According to the pattern, I completed the final purl row last night BUT I have the need to make the edging wider so will begin work on another 2 or 3 repeats of the last 2 rows. Basically a garter stitch increasing on the knit round. Another thing I'll do is move it to a few more circular needles so that I can really see the size. It's knit in the round and currently 580+ stitches on a 32 inch needle. A bit cramped.
After my love-fest over the Lantern Moon needles the other day, I shopped around their website a bit more and found these (scroll down, down, down) Needle Sleeves. Silk no less. Lantern Moon needles deserve these!
A request will be made to the powers-that-can-place-orders at
Ewe Knit Kits on Saturday. Want me to order some for you?
