WIP Wednesday, 10/26/11

Paper piecing and ticker tape.
And a little knitting. I'm using a Japanese yarn called Noro Kureyon. The name of this afghan will be Azekura, which is Japanese for a very old, traditional type of Japanese log cabin house (thanks for the translation, Ayumi!)


I wonder if there will ever be a completed project to show. Although I guess completed projects belong to another day and place.

See what everyone else has been up to in the past week.

Simple paper piecing. Thank you. I am a summer/fall person. We go to Florida every winter to warm the bones.

Bravo to you for two projects in progress. (And look at me--finally got a WIP up online this week! Only you know why the hiatus. . .) I love the knitting. Another thing to add to the list of cool stuff you do. It will be beautiful.

And bravo to you for another bottled rainbow block along with your stars!
