Afghan Knitalong – Block One Check-in

Well, we’ve had some interesting developments here in the office!  Two of our knitters chose the Uptown Worsted Rocky Shore colors, but they each went their own way with it.

First, let’s look at Jen’s block.

Square 1 Jen

Jen chose 321 Chocolate Brown as her background.  Having seen the light background of the Cupcake Parade example, this hadn’t occurred to me to do!  It’s certainly a more sophisticated look.

And now Katie’s block.

It’s the exact same colorway, but she reversed the main color and the upper left block from Jen’s choice, making 303 Cream her background.   It’s going to be fascinating seeing how these two variations on a theme turn out!

For my colors, I mixed and matched from several options.

The main color is 322 Silver Grey, with accents of 336 Coffee, 302 White Glow, and 331 Sapphire.  It was a bit of a nail-biter picking a different group of colors, but I’m pleased so far.  I’ve got another color to add in for the next block.

Of course the back side of all of our blocks is a bit of a nest.

Not to worry, though.  Amy’s got a video coming up with tips on weaving in ends.

  1. I am participating in the afghan knit-a-long. I just wanted to be added to your list of participants. I did just begin square two.

    Thank you for this project. I know I will learn a lot.
