It’s WIP Wednesday!

Here’s what I’m working on this week:

I cast this on last night. I was visiting my Mom and I didn’t want her to see the afghan I was knitting so I brought a new project to start at her house.  These will be Toto the Extremely Useful and Cute Potholder by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne. These are a simple knit, very useful, and a cheerful edition to any kitchen. I am knitting them for a friend who sometimes reads this blog, so I can’t say much more at the moment. 🙂

Here’s the current status of the Aran Afghan:

For comparison, here’s what it looked like last week:

I was very happy to see that this afghan DID in fact get bigger. I realized this morning that I have to buy more yarn. I am close to halfway through the yarn I bought, but it will not be long enough if I don’t buy more. It looks like this afghan and I have a lot more work to do.

I still love it, I’m not bored with it or anything. I try to keep my eyes on the prize. I saw my Mom snuggling under the blanket I knit Dad for Christmas last night and I kept relishing in the fact that soon she will have a blanket of her own to keep her warm. 🙂
