Well, Square 6 is FINALLY Completed

Square 6
This particular one took me two weeks to complete. The reason for the long time was because I had to learn to knit and purl from the back. With the help of two helpful ladies in the KAL group and a video from Knitting Help I figured it out by trial and error. I had to frog for the first time since starting this project, a total of 6 or 7 times before I finally understood the rhythm.

I still made errors but once I was familiar with the stitch, the errors were easy to correct.

Humor Break - Knitting Ramen Noodles

with chopsticks. But seriously, I learned a couple of new techniques here.

HOW TO: Bind Off

Here's a good video to show you how to bind off.

Afghan KAL - Square 5 is Done!

Square 5
This square was the diagonal ribbing. It was easy once I got the hang of it. I took my time though so as to avoid any mistakes. And, I do think I managed to complete it without any mistakes.

I also did the BO the way the instructions suggested. Knitting the knitted ones and purling the purled ones. The finished edge looks quite nice. Glad I didn't cheat by knitting and BO all the stitches.
