Taking pictures of this project has been problematic but I've finally got the solution I think (at least for the first go-round of pictures). These are the squares from the Taste of Aran Afghan , done in Daletta, charcoal grey. Finding some combination of lighting and position that would let me show at least a little of the texture has been and interesting problem.
I have about 11 or 12 squares done, out of 20, and I have developed definite opinions about some of them.
This first one is one of my favorites. Grillwork Cable:

And this second is definitely one of my un-favorites. Star Stitch, presented as an alternative to Trinity Stitch, is a pain in the finger joints. I suspect it may also be a pain in blocking, judging from the skew of the unblocked square.

More of apricot daylilies have opened up, slightly less skewed than their predecessor bloom.
And the lemon daylilies have started blooming as well. The bees are crazy over these and I often find two or three bees in the bloom arguing over who gets to get the nectar first.

I have had an afghan of Aran stitches on my mind for years. Now I can live vicariously thru you! Love the daylilies.
