Norah's Vintage Afghan: Beginning Block #2

This is the beginning of Norah's Vintage Afghan Block #2. For this block, I am using Berroco Vintage worsted weight yarn in the "black currant" colorway. I love it!

I was so excited to finish up block #1 last night that I cast on block #2 this morning.  I've finished one pattern repeat so far.  What great texture in this block, don't you think?  One of the fun things about this project is that the pattern does NOT include a photo of each block nor can you see every block in the pattern photos (in the pattern, there is a photo of a woman with the blanket wrapped around her).  So each time you cast on a block, you are not quite sure what the block will look like.  It's almost like 20 small mystery-knit-alongs which is kind of fun!  I did find a photo of an entire completed afghan on line but I am trying to not look at it.  I like the surprise each time.

Here is one of the photos from the pattern.
