All about Aran ... done again!

You all knew I couldn't stop working on this didn't you?

Nope... I had to keep knitting more squares. Now with 9 squares done I have a respectable small lap blanket or baby blanket and I'm ready to take a break.

I love the textures of cables.

I think they look great in this natural colored yarn ... even if it is Lion Brand.

Baby Aran Afghan
All About Aran afghan by Janet Szabo (as featured on Knitty Gritty)
Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Natural Heather
(20% wool, 80% acrylic)
US 7 circulars
Cast on about September 4, 2006 (but of course the squares I knit way back then all got frogged)
Cast on for squares now actually in afghan about September 2008
Finished: March 15, 2009

Modifications: none other than to use only 9 squares and to pick my own assortment of square patterns (others are in the pattern and I did not use them)

Ravelry details here.

So cozy! I love all the different patterns. They do look wonderful in the neutral-toned yarn.

That turned out lovely! And I love Lion Brand's Fisherman's Wool. Glad you saved what you did.
