This has been a great journey and I’d just like a moment to say thank you. It is my sincere hope you enjoyed the knit and that you have an exquisite work of art for your home after working through this pattern with me for the last six months. Up until January this was a pattern only the knitters of Summit Yarn had access to in a handwritten version. Now it is all typed up and ready to be assembled into a real pattern. I adore my new friends in the Netherlands; especially ❤ to Gerrie, Miriam and Corina. It has been thrill to welcome 80 countries to this blog; the most recent of which are: Georgia (the country), Croatia and Indonesia! Please, send photos and stories if you have a moment…it is always such a thrill to see these random ideas become someone else's artwork!

This afghan is comprised of 20 different squares, three different insertions and a Leaf Lace edging. There are 26 different stitches in all explored in this afghan pattern. Also, any one of the squares would be a beautiful scarf on its own…or serve well as a base pattern for any other idea you might have.

Here is one other photo of the afghan in progress:

The Arsenic and Old Lace Afghan featured in the photos above is being created in Elsbeth Lavold’s Silky Wool and Silky Tweed. This is a great yarn for clarity of stitch and texture.

Take care and please stay in touch!

with love, laughter and light always, Mary Ellen

…how about a sock KAL next? ;-D xoxox
