A progress report is in order!

The "courthouse steps"blanket is progressing slowly because I've knitted on the "Curve of Pursuit" most of the time. This is a picture of the finished 11 squares. One more square and the border and I'll be done. It's genius, I love it.
I think I have to let you all know that the "Curve of Pursuit" pattern is not in the Mason Dixon Book. There's only a picture of it in it. The pattern must be purchased seperate. It's by Pat Ashforth and Steven Plummer . I've bought the pattern on e-bay.

Is this pattern in the book? I don't remember seeing it. Am I blind??
I would really like to make one of these.

That Curve of Pursuit of yours is a thing of beauty to behold.

Can't wait to see the put together courthouse steps.

Both blankets are absolutely stunning. I love the colors you choose for the courthouse steps. Can't wait to see it grow.

All your log cabining (is that even a word? LOL) makes me want to pick mine back up and see how it turns out!

Vielen Dank

My pattern just arrived. Very good service from Pat, I must say. I note that your COP is done in 3 colors - very cool. I'm not sure what I will use - but am determined to use stash yarn. Keep working on yours, and post photos, please. You are an inspiration.

Monika,

I just love your Curve of Pursuit afghan. It is really a great use of color and I love that you used more than two. Great job, keep on knitting and welcome to the sockknitters group.

Just got my pattern from Pat. Such quick service all the way from the UK to California! I can hardly wait to start and have to decide on my color combo.
Love the Courthouse steps too! Can't wait to see your finished afghan.
