I've sewn up the first afghan for the 2010 Pine Street Knit-a-thon. I decided that this afghan would have single color squares in a diagonal stripe pattern. There are not any pattern repeats within each color yarn. I made sure in the placement that different color pattern repeats were not located next to each other.
I am getting close to finishing the second afghan. I have completed 26 squares, which means I only need to finish 9 more! (I kicked two squares out of the total, so technically I've knit 28 squares.)
