I got to spend a lot of time lazing around Sunday, which let me get two more blocks done for my National Parks afghan!
This one is for Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. The image the designer chose is a Rocky Mountain Blue Columbine flower. I worked this in a mix of intarsia and stranded stitching, with a little duplicate stitch as well.
The second one is of Haleakala in Hawaii. The image in the design is the silversword plant, which is native to Hawaii and are being protected in the park. This square uses a specialized stitch (basically a dip stitch) to represent the plants on a seed stitch background.
Part of the fun of making these squares is finding out a little more about each of these parks 🙂
