I am almost finished with my afghan. All of the squares are done and joined together. The top lace border is completed, I have the bottom lace border and i-cord on the two sides left. I am out of Rowan yarn in noir, so I can't finish until I get more. The yarn shop is also out of noir but they have it on order, so I will have to wait until they come in. I am very happy with how the afghan has come out. I enjoyed working out the color combinations and charting the bird in the center. I am knitting another afghan this year but I selected the colors and ordered all of the yarn at the start. I ran out too many times while working on this one.
While I wait for my noir yarn to come in, I am working on some old projects. These include my UFO for the Lake County ANG Chapter which is Lynne Tomlinson's Cabin in the Woods. I started it 13 or 14 years ago and never finished. Now, I have a year to finish or I will have to pay the guild $10.00. You can see from the picture how much progress I have made so far, I think finishing is feasible. There are two more trees, a top and bottom border and a very simple background. I am hoping to finish a number of projects this year, I selected two challenge pieces for the Lake Michigan Sampler Guild as well.
