Top Secret Knitting! Shhhhhhhhh!

Well, since you last checked in I did not finsh my last pair of socks for Socktoberfest, but they are still in progress and maybe they'll be done for November.
I have however knit 2 blocks for the Great American Aran Afghan. Our guild decided that this would be a nice project to work on at our meetings. We have all just started randomly with the blocks we like and we'll be able to help each other if anyone runs into problems.

My next project is a secret. I'm sorry I can't share it with you because it's for someone special for Christmas and she reads my blog. (NoSamantha it's not for you!) I would actually like this one to be a surprise for a change.
I had started it in Dale of Norway Tuir but found it was a little too scratchy for my liking, so I broke down and had to buy yarn. It's knit with Filitura Di Crosa's Zarina. OH MY GOD!
This yarn feels like butter. I may not want to give it away when it's done.

Now I'm off to cast on, I hope the Halloweener's are quick tonight, I have alot of knitting to do.

Boohoo. It should be for me. *pout*

Your squares look great. I'm headed to Lens this weekend to pick up my yarn and cast on. :)

I love those squares, so pretty. I absolutely love that yarn too, and I knit a lot of cardigans and jumpers for Isabelle in it. It is soft like butter, and gorgeous colors too. I cannot wait to see the surprise knit either, sounds exciting.

The aran cable blocks look great. I'd love to knit one of these one day, but they just look to be SO much work. Cute cats too. :o)
