Winter Lace Afghan & TUSAL

First finished project of 2010.

Needles: Size 11
Yarn: Lion Brand Thick and Quick, Claret
Pattern: Winter Lace Afghan, Free at Lion Brand

It's very easy knitting once you get the pattern down. It makes a heavy, nice sized, lap blanket.

I have also decided to participate in the Totally Useless SAL again. I'm using my jar that I started in July. I'm thinking I might divide it into two jars--one knitting, one stitching.

Here is the jar as it is now--the bulky yarn from the blanket really added to the contents.

Thinking about Olympic Crafting

I have been thinking that I would challenge myself to some Olympic knitting/stitching a la Harlot.

Right now I am thinking I would like to start and finish Bramble and the Rose by Ink Circles during the Olympic games next month.

Anybody else going to give themselves an Olympic size challenge?
