I have some new furniture ordered from Kloter Farms in Ellington. The sofas will take 6-10 weeks to come in. So in order to make the weeks speed by, I decided to knit a afghan to match. I chose to knit Wool Leaves by Jared Flood.
Kara and Betsy have made this for baby blankets a number of times and they highly recommended the pattern. Quick, easy and stunning. I am doubling both the width and length. Hoping for a large curl up on my comfy sofas kind of afghan. This yarn is Shibui Staccatio – 70% merino and 30% silk.
The pattern is very quick moving. I am holding this double and knitting on size 11 needles. I made this much progress in one evening. I think I will be able to complete before the sofas arrive.
