More Miters

We’ve had a bit of cool weather lately, which has made it possible for me to work on my mitered-square afghan. I’m enjoying the rather serendipitous use of the different colors of the alpaca yarn.

The piece is getting pretty big though, which makes it harder and harder to get a decent photo. I’m going to have to resort to more artistic angles — I love the way the garter ridges show up when viewed from a low angle! I’m using two strands of my very thin 2-ply handspun for this block — the other yarns are closer to worsted weight in thickness.

  1. It looks great! Are you sketching out a plan of colours and blocks or just winging it as you go along?

  2. Both. I sketched out a diagram of the block size. I’m mostly winging the color selection, though, based on the amount of yarn I have of each color. I have two sources of the dark brown (one that I spun and another that I bought) so it looks as though there’s twice as much of the dark brown than the other colors, but I think I’m using about an equal amount of each source, except for the light gray, of which I only had one skien.
