The afghan is progressing--slowly. The stitch patterns are getting more interesting, but are not exactly a speed-knitting project. I'm working on square #7 which has a ton of stitches that are knit or purled in the back of the stitch. Now that I have the purple yarn, I will go back and do square #2.
My Charlotte's Web kit from Threadbear should arrive soon and I will be stalking the mailman on Saturday.
