Norah's Vintage Afghan: #11 Complete
Wow! This was a quick block. It looks so tricky and complicated but this block was one of the easiest yet. Most of the rows in this block were simply knit 3, purl 3. Cable stitches occur on only 8 rows in the entire block if I am not mistaken. The cables themselves are a bit tricky. The cables are worked over 9 stitches. After you work the first 3 stitches from the cable needle, you do have to move some stitches from the cable needle BACK to the left hand needle and work those stitches, and THEN you work the last 3 stitches on the cable needle. Not too hard but just enough to make you feel as if you are all thumbs at times.
The yarn in this block is Berroco Vintage Worsted weight and the colorway is "Smoke". I am not sure if I am going to start another block right now, or if I will work on some other WIPs. I have two classes to teach this coming Friday (my "Building Blocks" and my "Building in Color" afghan classes at my local knit shop... the Yarn Shop at Words of Life). I spent most of today making pillows for my Etsy shop and preparing for Friday's classes.
Up next, I'll show you my latest Building in Color panel.
