Wool Warehouse: Yarn packs in 3 palettes in Stylecraft Special DK and Stylecraft Batik DK available now. Swiss Meadow (gold and silver and white), Romance Punch Meadow (claret or lipstick, cream, silver, khaki), and Emperor II Meadow (closely resembles dmbonner’s afghan, see photos left).

Branta canadensis is the Canada Goose and the topic and inspiration of much of my work. Every year, we’re fascinated by the spring and fall migrations, and many of them nest and take care of their young in the numerous ponds on our property. They are industrious, excellent parents, and provide hours of entertainment for us as we go on our daily walks. Enjoy creating Canada Goose Wings and Feet in your representative Canada Geese meandering through the pansies and tulip border, and sunning themselves in the Meadow. Original borders round off the edges and give textural interest balancing the wing blocks and pansy stitch flowers.

TESTING Thanks: A huge huge thank you to all my testers, both of preliminary blocks (catmouse76, dakotastamper, goldenrex, and petrahblok), and those who continued into testing a full afghan in a few short weeks! francestyas, dmbonner, mawmawsgarden, madaboutpooh, nitaknits, wg96girl. Special thanks to goldenrex who also proofread with a red pen and helped lay out the tutorial and photos.
