The Plymouth Encore arrived yesterday, so I cast on for the first square of the "Great American Aran Afghan". I'm going to start on the 'easier' ones in the book and then see what happens. I'll post the progress as it happens.
I'm turning the heel on the first sock, and have even made it halfway up the front of the rosey sweater. But I want to start other things! I checked out "Knitters Stash" from the Library yesterday, and haven't looked at this book since this past summer. So now, of course, there is so much I feel I am capable of doing. I'm thinking of buying some yarn for the lace shawl they have in the book (is it the Morning Flowers shawl, maybe?) and doing that as my first big lace project. I think that might make me a bit more comfortable with the more complex lace stuff.
