Can you see it now with the close up?
It is all lit up at night.
So off we walked to go visit it this morning. For we people from Dutch pancake country, this is quite a walk all up steep hills. It is worth it as the castle is beautiful to see.
So I am not working at my normal tempo but still have done well this past week. I have made a further 59 little grannies for my autumn throw. I now have 121 completed of the 125. I wish I could add another row but this is all the yarn I have left and would need to make 13 blocks but only have enough for 9 I think.
It will become longer and wider though when I start on the edging. I am using a double strand of a dark brown yarn from my stash to do the edges. I have used 17 skeins of yarn so far for the grannies and almost used all of each of the last skeins.
One of the things I am working on is trying to understand how to figure how much yarn is needed for an afghan. Any tips? After two years of making many afghans already, I have still not quite gotten the hang out of judging the amounts.
This afghan will have a few memories hooked into it with today being here in Germany celebrating Jos' birthday. Off home tomorrow morning early though as my monthly quilt group meets on Wednesday evening.
