(singing) “Roll out the barrel…we’ll have a barrel of fun!”
Yeah, I know….it’s kinda early to start celebrating, but I always let myself have a little party when I finish each part of a knitting project. Woo Hoo!
The back of my cape is COMPLETE!
My party can’t last that long, though…because I still have work to do. I have immediately cast on the front of the cape, to keep my momentum going.
I decided to get all my cape stuff together in a pretty basket, so I could easily carry it to my knitting group tomorrow. I want them to see my nice cape in progress. Our knitting group meets once or twice a month, to work on our crafts, share our latest FOs, and get advice on problems we might be having. If you don’t have a group in your area, you should start one up yourself, because it’s a lot of fun.
In the middle of my cape (literally!), I received another package of yarn from Bernat. Yippee!!! Time for another party! Ha!
Now I have everything ready to start making next month’s project. It’s another free pattern from the Bernat website, called the “Star Afghan“, and it’s absolutely GORGEOUS! My step-son has been asking for an afghan, so this is what I’ve chosen to make for him. I would venture to say that he will think the afghan is “cool”.
Here’s a photo, so you can see what the finished product should look like:
I’m making mine with black, grey, and red yarns, since that’s what my stepson has requested. I’m anxious to start knitting that beautiful afghan!
